These Easter cookie cups are made with a cup of peanut butter, caster sugar, brown sugar, shortening, a teaspoon of salt and vanilla, two eggs, a quarter cup of milk, three and a half cups of flour and couple teaspoons of baking soda. You start by creaming the first four ingredients with salt and vanilla. Once the mixture is well blended, the eggs are added. The flour mixture is added last. The dough is rolled into a log and cut into pieces of equal weight (30 g each). Each piece is placed into a well-greased muffin tin. To help mold the dough into the muffin tin, the dough is pressed with a fondant rolling pin to make indent into each scoop. The cookies are baked at 350F for 10-15 minutes. They are cooled completely before decorating.
Vanilla frosting is tinted in green and piped on the cookie using an open star tip. M&Ms peanut candy are laid on top.
See how cute they are! They are loved by kids and kids at heart.
