The season of baking has arrived! And with it come out all the beloved holiday cookie recipes. It seems that everyone has their own special collection of tried and true baking favorites that they make every holiday season. I’m no different, I have 3-4 really delicious cookie favorites that my family expects me to make around the holidays. Each year though I enjoy trying 1 or 2 new recipes that hopefully win my family over and can go into the “keep” file.

This year the “test” recipe was a hit! So without further ado I present…Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookie Cups. I was invited to an annual cookie exchange that my friend Sarah hosts and took these as my contribution. What I like about these cookies is that you can make them in a snap. Yes, technically they aren’t 100% from scratch, but once in awhile that’s just fine in my book. I’ll get around to making my from scratch cookies closer to Christmas.

The basis for Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookie Cups is good old Pillsbury peanut butter cookie dough in a roll. Yes, the big old tube you find in the refrigerated section of your supermarket. You can get a couple dozen of these made in just a few minutes. Simply use a small melon scooper and plunk the dough into a mini-muffin pan. Bake and push a Rolo into the center, then to complete sprinkle with a smidge of sea salt! Fancy, but not too fancy!

  1. These look great! And so easy. I love how delicious these must be with the addition of salt to them. Thanks for the great cookie exchange idea!

  2. Going to try these out today 🙂 I only have one mini muffin pan, though, and it fits 2 dozen cookies. Does one 30 oz. tube for sure make 4 doze cookies? Thanks.
