Peanut Butter Cup Cookies


These cookies are DELICIOUS! I found this recipe on www.allrecipes.com. These are soooo good! I probably shouldn't make these cookies very often since I can't stop eating them. :) If you like peanut butter and chocolate then you will love these! They are also fun to make with kids.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. milk
30-40 miniature Reese's peanut butter cups, frozen and unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.

Cream together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.

Shape into 30-40 balls and place each ball into an ungreased mini muffin pan. (I got about 30 balls but I think I could have made them a little smaller)

Bake at 375 for approximately 8 minutes. Be careful to not over bake. They should be a very light golden color. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and then carefully remove from pan.
