Peanut Butter Vanilla Wafer Cupcakes

Last weekend I made some cupcakes for my mom's birthday.  I didn't use all the batter, though.  I put the leftover batter in an air-tight container in the fridge.  The next day I decided to do some baking experiments.

I filled the bottom of the foil liners with one spoonful of batter. 
I wanted to put something in the cupcakes.  Like cookies.  And I had an unopened box of vanilla wafers in the pantry.

So I tried them out.

I wondered if vanilla wafers got softer after you bake them, like Oreos.
They do. :)

Then I got a crazy idea.

Vanilla wafers with peanut butter between them.  Little peanut butter sandwiches.

Then I covered them with batter until the cups were between 1/2 and 2/3 full.

The cookies floated to the tops of the cupcakes, so I suggest putting them on the bottom of the liners and then covering them with batter. 

They were very soft and peanut-buttery, though.  They were pretty good for something I made up on the spot.

I had fun decorating these.  I just practiced my piping.

I don't know if I'll make these again.  They were sort of just for fun.  I took some of these and some other cupcakes to one of my meetings just so I could get them out of my apartment and everyone there seemed to like them.
