Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
Recipe type: Dessert
Easy peanut butter cookie cups made in a mini muffin pan then topped with a mini peanut butter cup!
  • 1¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 40-50 white chocolate (or milk chocolate) peanut butter cups
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and either spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray or line with muffin cups. Set aside.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt & soda in a small bowl.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter & sugars. Add the egg, vanilla & milk. Mix till combined.
  4. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.
  5. Roll into balls (about 1 T. size) and place in the prepared mini muffin cups. (depending on the exact size of balls you make, you will get anywhere between 40-50 cookie cups. The bigger you make them, the more they will puff up around the peanut butter cup. I make mine just around a heaping tablespoon and get over 40 cups but there are only about 40 peanut butter cups per bag, so I usually buy 2 bags).
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. While they are baking, take the wrappers off of the peanut butter cups.
  7. Remove from the oven and immediately place a peanut butter cup into the center of the cookie cup. Let cool for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
