Mini Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
about 42 miniature peanut butter-chocolate cups
In a bowl, combine the butter, sugars, egg, peanut butter and vanilla; beat until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Roll into walnut-sized balls; place in greased miniature muffin cups. Bake at 375° for 8-9 minutes.
Remove from oven; gently press one peanut butter cup into each cookie, forming a depression. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
**You can use a Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix instead of making the cookie dough from scratch if you need/want a shortcut. This will make about 22-24 cookies.**
