I love to bake cookies. They make your house smell all sweet and yummy and they look so pretty all lined up on the cooling rack after they've just come out of the oven. But the best part about baking cookies is that you can eat them right away!
I've been making these peanut butter cup cookies for years using refrigerated cookie dough, but then I noticed the homemade version here and thought wow......I can make these cookies today and not even have to run to Wal-mart. Woo Hoo - it's cookie time!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 T milk
40 miniature Reese Cups, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.
Shape into 40 balls and place each into a greased mini muffin pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini Reese Cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan. Decorate with nonpareils if desired.
