Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I don’t think you can go wrong with a peanut butter and chocolate combo.  I made Peanut Butter Cup Cookies yesterday for Josh, to help him get through studying for finals.  Ok fine, they’re also for me to get through Josh getting through studying for finals.  I’m going to have to come up with a new excuse when he graduates!  Excuse or no excuse, give this recipe a try…you’ll be happy you did.  And make sure to eat one (or two…) shortly after they come out of the oven while the chocolate is all melty!  (I know, melty is not a word but it should be)

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

From       Print Recipe

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Original Recipe Yield: 40 cookies, I only got 23 from the recipe


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter             *I used crunchy
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped         *I only  used 23


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda.  Set aside.  In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter, and brown sugar until the mixture is fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Beat in the egg, vanilla, and milk until combined.  Slowly mix in the flour mixture, mix until just combined.  Shape the dough into evenly-sized balls.  Place dough balls in an ungreased mini muffin pan.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are set.  Remove from oven and immediately place a mini peanut butter cup in the middle of each cookie.  Allow to cool in the pan, then remove and enjoy!
