Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup butter if using salted butter, omit salt, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 and place non-stick ungreased mini muffin pan for cookie cups aside while you prepare the cookies.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, combine the butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla.
  • Beat on med-high speed for about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add the egg and beat for about 30 seconds, until just incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until combined.
  • Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop or form the dough into balls and place them into the mini muffin pan. Do not have the dough go over the top of the muffin cup or you will get peanut butter cup overload and they aren't as pretty.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.
  • The tops should look underdone, they will firm up as the cookies are cooling.
  • Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.

Notes

Use any type of peanut butter cup or kiss for these sweet amazing treats!
