Peanut Butter Temptations

These cookies are incredibly addicting - you won't be able to stop popping them in your mouth!  One batch is usually perfect for us, otherwise we would all have a tummy ache! :)  We make them all year round, but these make a great addition to your Christmas cookie assortment.


Peanut Butter Temptations

Approximately 40 Miniature Reeses's Peanut Butter Cups  (11 oz Bag)
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Egg
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Flour
3/4 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.  Remove wrappers from peanut butter cups.  Line mini-muffin tin with paper cups, if desired.

Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter - then add egg and vanilla until fluffy.  Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.  Shape dough into 1" balls (I just use my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop with the rounded part facing up).  Place one in each paper-lined or ungreased muffin cup.  Do not flatten.


Bake 10-12 minutes until puffed and lightly browned; remove from oven.  Immediately press peanut butter cup in center of each cookie.  Let cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pan.

Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
