Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

These come from my friend Kim at www.lemonleafhome.com They are easy and SO delicious! And maybe not true Christmas cookies, but I figured if peanut butter balls are considered Christmas-y then why not :-)!


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 36 mini peanut butter cups


  • Cream together brown sugar, white sugar, butter, peanut butter, egg & vanilla extract.
  • Add in flour, salt and baking soda. Mix until incorporated.
  • Unwrap 36 mini peanut butter cups and set aside.
  • Form dough into 1" ball and place in a greased mini muffin tin.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes.
  • After removing tin from the oven, immediately push peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. Let them cool completely before removing from the tin.
