peanut butter cookie cupcakes

Today’s the next 140Sweets event, benefiting the American Cancer Society’s DetermiNation Program. When I learned about the event, I started thumbing through all of my cupcake cookbooks for the “magic” cupcake. Lots of the ones I really wanted to make (why hello, spiced chai!) involved temperamental icing (something about a whipped cream style icing doesn’t work with making an interim stop at the office).

These peanut butter cookie cupcakes from Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes cookbook (apparently, even available for ordering for your Kindle!) caught my attention. They were like a cupcake version of a standard peanut butter cookie. Yes. Just about perfect. Peanut butter in both the cupcake and icing portion (the icing also has cream cheese – so much cream cheese).

Iced and ready to go!

These were super easy to make. The recipe claimed a 30 cupcake yield, but I ended up with 26. Check out @140Sweets on Twitter if you’re interested in learning more about tonight’s event!
