Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Cookie
Serves: 24
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 72 Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream peanut butter, butter and sugars together in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy. (I like to mix mine on medium speed a full minute.)
  3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add to creamed mixture and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place in a mini muffin pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately press a peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie. Freeze for 5 to 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days (if they last that long!).
