mini peanut butter cup cookies
Leslie made these mini peanut butter cup cookies for us for our dinner last night. I'd seen them before and have always wanted the recipe. It was a very hot evening and the peanut butter cups started to melt creating a marvelously oozy chocolate peanut butter experience for anyone seeking an indulgent bite or two.
mini peanut butter cup cookies (my friend Leslie)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag mini Reese's peanut butter cups
Cream butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg and vanilla together.
Add flour and baking soda.
Form balls (a little smaller than a golf ball) and drop into mini muffin pan (greased).
Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes.
Let cool 3-5 minutes in pan. Squish a peanut butter cup in each "muffin".
What Leslie has to say- hers began to melt after she put the peanut butter cups in so she put them in the fridge to firm up. They were super easy to get out of the pan after they were firm.
