Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

This recipe is my first post on my new Rookie Cookie blog. The maiden voyage should be a recipe that is important and something I am familiar with. Meet peanut butter cookie cups. They are so sinful you might have to repent to the bishop after eating them.

A friend of ours from church had ankle surgery yesterday so to cheer him up, I made these. It is also a good excuse to make them- they are insanely good.

½ cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ tsp vanilla
1¼ cups flour
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 small bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups

Set oven to 375°.

Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, peanut butter, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and combine and until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamy mixture. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place in a greased mini muffin tin.

Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven and press a peanut butter cup inside each cookie. Let them sit for 10 minutes before removing. ENJOY!

Thanks for starting a food blog. Those cookies are SO SO SO amazing and, frankly, it's better that I look at pictures of them rather than eat them. They're more addictive than coke.

They are amazing!!! The fam ate them right up. I had to hide a couple for B and Liv's school lunch.
