Holiday Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Recipe

Celebration Food:  I'm posting this fun cookie recipe by Pillsbury in honor of National Candy Day which is celebrated on November 4th- but I think this would be a great recipe to remember for leftover Halloween candy or Christmas stocking candy too. What a great cookie for a children's party! Every kid will want one. :)

INGREDIENTS:

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated peanut butter cookies
1 cup miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits, fall colored (yellow, orange, brown, green, red)
1/2 cup salted peanuts
24 miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped

DIRECTIONS:

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in baking bits and peanuts until well blended.

2. Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by 24 heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart; flatten each slightly with fingers.

3. Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with 1 peanut butter cup; press lightly into dough. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Let cookies stand until peanut butter cups are set before storing, about 3 hours.
