Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Well, I think it's safe to say I've been craving chocolate and peanut butter. What's not to love about the perfect pair? These cookies from Chocolate Chocolate and More are bite sizes pieces of heaven! Pour yourself a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
Yield: 24-30
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 24-30 mini Reese's peanut butter cups
  1. Beat butter and sugar together till creamy. Add in peanut butter and beat again till combined. Add egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt, gradually add in flour mixture till all combined. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place each ball into the cup of an ungreased mini muffin tin. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.
  2. Immediately after removing muffin tin from oven press one Reese's cup into the center of each cookie. Let cool in pan for about 10 minutes before removing. Let cool completely on racks.
A few tips. Place Reese's cups in the freezer 30 minutes prior to using. If you'rte having trouble removing cookies from the muffin tin, slide a thin knife around edges then it should pop right out.
