Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. Butter - unsalted and at room temperature
  • 1/2 c. Peanut Butter - I prefer Jif Creamy
  • 1/2 c. Dark Brown Sugar - firmly packed
  • 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 c. Flour
  • 3/4 t. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/4 t. Coarse Sea Salt opt.
  • Reeses Miniature Peanut Butter Cups - 1 package

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Prepare the mini-cupcake tins by spraying with cooking spray.
  • Cream butter and peanut butter until totally combined.
  • Add both sugars and cream together for 3 minutes.
  • Add egg and beat until well combined.
  • Add vanilla and blend.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salts.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture.
  • Mix just until the flour mixture is well incorporated, but do not over-mix.
  • Roll into 1-inch balls and place one in each mini-muffin cup.
  • Bake 8 1/2-10 minutes - just until they start turning a little darker brown.
  • Remove from the oven and press one peanut butter cup into the middle of each muffin.
  • Let cool and set for 2 minutes, then remove carefully (I use a thin table knife) and place on a cooling rack.
  • If the cookies fall apart when trying to remove from the pan, wait another minute and they should come out okay.)
  • These freeze well. The taste will stay the same, but the chocolate might have a little bit different look.
  • ENJOY!!
