Mini Muffin Cookies

The Ingredients:

When it comes to the ingredients, the sky is the limit. Use whatever kind of cookie dough and mini candies you think would work together. In this case, an assortment of reese's, rolos and kisses with chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie doughs.

The Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Remove the wrapper from the cookie dough and slice into 1" to 1 1/2" slices. Take those slices, flip them on their side and cut them into quarters.
Put the quartered pieces into greased mini muffin tins. Put the tins into the oven for 6 to 8 minutes.

While the dough is in the oven, unwrap your candies. See that lovely assortment. I've even made these cookies with mini snickers. That was good!
Look at those beauties! Don't worry, magic does not happen and they do not come out of the oven with the candy in place. Remove the tins from the oven when the dough is slightly golden brown. Once out of the oven, immediately put the candy into the dough. Just a little push into the dough is good. You want it in, but not forced. Let the cookies cool a little bit. Use a spoon to remove from the tins.
Pile high just to watch it all disappear. You'll notice there are lighter, not as golden brown, cookies. Make sure they're golden brown. The more "raw" they are the harder they are to get out of the tin. Trust me with this one!
I tube of cookie dough makes about 3 to 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Go forth, make these cookies and use your imagination mixing and matching dough to candy.

Let me know what you find to be a good combination!

I made these cookies when Kaitlin was home last weekend. She took just about all of them back to camp with her. She was afraid that she'd eat most of them on her drive back, so she put them in the trunk.

These cookies we named them "heaven in your mouth cookies" because they're so addicting and yummy... I just might have to make them soon!
