Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies             

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (13-ounce) package peanut butter cup miniatures

Preheat oven to 375*F (190*C).
Combine flour, baking soda and salt together; set aside.
With an electric mixer, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla; mixing well. Stir in flour mixture until just mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place in ungreased mini muffin tin (no need to press or form). Bake 9 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from oven and press a peanut butter cup into the middle of each cookie. Wait 5 minutes and then twist and lift to remove.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
