Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Hi everyone! I’m really excited to be doing a guest post for Lisa today (my first ever!) Sweet 2 Eat Baking was one of the first blogs I started following before taking the leap of starting my own :D Today’s recipe is inspired by my friend Natasha over at Butter Baking who recently made some cookies baked in paper cases.

It also means you don’t have to wait for the cookie … [Read more...]
