To make the Strawberry Filling:

  • Heat a saucepan over medium heat and add the strawberries, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Do not add any liquid!
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and reduce the heat if needed. You want the mixture to be a light simmer, not a rolling boil, for about 10 minutes. Using your spatula, stir and mash the strawberries as they cook. The berries will reduce and thicken as they cook.
  • Once the mixture has thickened and reduced, remove from heat and allow it to cool completely.

To make the Cookies:

    • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    • Combine the peanut butter, sweetener, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, and egg until a smooth cookie dough batter forms.
  • Scoop the dough into a 24-count mini muffin tin (this is much easier with a silicone pan. If using a metal pan, grease the pan well and/or line it with mini muffin liners)
  • Lightly press an indention with a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon.
  • Bake the cookies 12-15 minutes until set. note: remember, the cookies will finish baking on the hot pan once you remove them from the oven. They are done when they have set and no longer have a shiny appearance in the center of the cookie
  • Allow the cookies to cook for 7-10 minutes, and then use the same 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to gently make another indention in each cookie to create a perfect little well. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
  • Once the cookies have cooled completely, fill each cup with the cooled strawberry sauce.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
