Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

These cookies can be made with the peanut butter cookie recipe below or your favorite basic cookie recipe. When I make them with my students I just grab a mix from the grocer that just calls for a little oil, one egg and water. You will need 2 mini muffin pans.

The following recipe makes at least 60 cookies.


1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup sifted flour
3/4 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Reeces Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

Thoroughly cream butter, peanut butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients, blend into creamed mixture shape into small balls (don’t worry if the dough seems a little wet), put balls of dough into mini muffin pan, bake 8 minutes at 375F.

*Note: for variety you can bake some of the cookie dough into regular peanut butter cookies–just roll the dough balls in granulated sugar bake on baking sheet as your recipe indicates.
