Holiday Baking with Pompeian Grapeseed Oil: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Pin It!

Christmas is just around the corner! Do those words make you squeal with delight or shriek with terror? For me, it's the squealing with delight part, mostly because I've gotten almost ALL of my Christmas gift shopping done! Whew! In between all the shopping and the shopping and the shopping I've managed to squeeze in a little baking time -- which is what really makes the holidays the holidays in my opinion! I was recently turned out to a great new product from Pompeian -- their grapeseed oil spray. It's perfect for holiday baking due to it's relatively high smoke point, and it's also got a great flavor! I've been using it in all of my baking this month and so far I'm completely in love! 

Today I decided I'd share a little recipe my daughter and I whipped up this week, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups. They're a delightful little treat if you're going to have company or if you're just looking for something easy to share at work!

The spray is actually really fun to use! I found myself wanting to keep spraying and spraying because it looks so neat... but, I had to make myself stop... my pan was getting overly saturated.

You can see here that my pan was, in fact, heavily saturated. Oops. But, aren't they cute?! I think they're adorable... AND they taste like creamy peanut buttery goodness... with a nice chocolate accent!

So, you should probably head to the store right now to get the ingredients for these little cuties. My daughter says "They are the best things I have ever tasted in my whole entire life." She might be exaggerating just a tad bit, but at least she's enthusiastic, right?
