Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

June 24th, Helena Montana - Our niece and nephew were coming for a visit so my husband decided to make them some delicious homemade treats, the Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. They turned out really good, the peanut butter and chocolate together is just perfect!

Peanut Butter Cup CookiesSo, If you're deciding to make them, try this great food recipe. Here are the ingredients and directions:

   3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1/4 cup peanut butter
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 egg, beaten
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon milk
    20 miniatures chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.

Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda then set aside.

Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. 

Add the flour mixture; mix well. Shape into 40 balls and place each into an un-greased mini muffin pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. 

Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball.

You cannot eat these little peanut butter cookies right away. You have to wait for them to cool completely. If you try to remove the cookies from the pan while they are still warm, the peanut butter cup cookies will fall apart. So resist if you can for a few hours.

Serving: 20

If you like chocolate, if you like peanut butter, if you just like sweets period this peanut butter cookie is for you! The dough is just sooo chewy and perfect and the peanut butter cup just tops it off!!
