    Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cookie dough according to package instructions.

  • 2

    Add 2 tablespoons of flour to batter while mixing so cookies will hold a domed shape.

    Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls but do not flatten. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes. Let cool completely.

    Place a mini peanut butter cup upside down in the middle of the icing until it spreads and forms a ring around the bottom of the peanut butter cup.

So I am doubly thankful for these sweet treats! So cute, you might have to start Thanksgiving dinner with dessert this year!
