peanut butter cup cookies

I always have a ton of Halloween candy left over so I decided one year to use the left over candy in my holiday baking and here is one of the recipes that my friends and family enjoy.

peanut butter cup cookies

ingredients:

1 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour ( I use gluten free)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup of peanut butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of milk

and about 30-40 miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups, unwrapped (the fun part for the kids just make sure the don’t sneak any)

pe-heat the oven to 375 degrees F(190 degrees C ). cream together the butter , sugar , peanut butter and brown sugar tell well combined . beat in the eggs, vanilla and milk . add the flour and baking soda. mix well .

don’t forget to grease the muffin tin ( might be easier if you are cooking with kids) or parchment on a cookie sheet

shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place into a mini muffin pan.bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball( please supervise your children if they our helping the pan is very, very hot . Cool and carefully remove the peanut butter cookies from the pan .

Notes : before baking the dough you can add sprinkles for a more festive look.

I Hope your family enjoys these cookies year round the are so easy and fun to make. have a great holiday season
