Come on. Admit it… I had you at Reese’s, didn’t I? These cookies are a family favorite and are a perfect addition to any holiday cookie plate. Their mini muffin-tin shape makes it hard to eat just one, though! Enjoy!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/2 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/4 c. flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 40something mini Reese’s peanut butter cups (you can eat the extras )
Beat butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place in greased mini muffin pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. When done, place peanut butter cup onto cookie and press down. Let cool in pan before removing. Yields around 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
Quick Tip: I like to use my small scoop for these to keep the balls more uniform and easier to roll.
