If you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, Peanut Butter Cups are the cookies you may want to try. These cookies are great all year round, but they are especially good around Christmas. If you are thinking of trying some new cookie recipes this year, add this one to your list.
The ingredients you will need are:
- 1 ¾ c. flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ c. butter, softened
- ½ c. white sugar
- ½ c. peanut butter
- ½ c. brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 T. milk
- 40 miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees before you begin. Take out a medium sized bowl and mix the flour, salt and baking soda in it. Set this bowl aside and grab another bowl. Cream the butter, white sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar together until it is light and fluffy. Beat the egg in next, as well as the milk and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture to the second mixture and combine well. Shape the dough into 40 balls and place one ball in each opening in an ungreased mini muffin pan. Bake the cookies for approximately 8 minutes and once you remove them, press a peanut butter cup in the top of each one.
Cool these completely before removing from the pan and store in an airtight container. Your family will love these cookies and they also look great. You can bring them to parties and functions and everyone will enjoy them.
