Quick Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Updated on March 25, 2014

As much as I enjoy cooking from scratch, often there is not enough time and I need to make something fast. The kids are having friends over, a relative happens to be in the neighborhood or contributing a dessert for a pot luck dinner are just a few occasions where this may be the case.

This is one of the easiest dessert recipes and only two ingredients are needed. Keeping these items at home for the next time you need a quick dessert makes life much easier.


  • 1 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 bag mini peanut buttercups, unwrapped


  1. Prepare cookies according to package directions and bake.
  2. Remove cookies from oven and press a peanut butter cup into each one.

      Would refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough or chocolate chip cookie dough work? This recipe looks great!
