Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

10:24:00 PM

So tonight I was inspired to bake some Christmas goodies for my coworkers at Sea Turtle Conservancy to show them my appreciation as tomorrow is my last day at my internship. I can't believe how fast this semester has gone by...but I am definitely ready for the end of this chapter in my life. I am ready to get married and have a family and not have to study for exams or write is going to be glorious!

Well in the holiday spirit I baked some yummy in my tummy peanut butter cup cookies. You have to try these! They are so good and I promise if you like peanut butter and you like chocolate, this recipe is a GRAND SLAM!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon 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 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.

Off to sleep in my nice cozy bed...goodnight everyone!
