Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Butter Cookie Cups!

Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Butter Cookie Cup. It's a long name, but totally worth it! I guess we could shorten it to Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Cups, if you want. ;) I do believe that these may be a new favorite of mine. Give them a try- you won't be disappointed!! 

 Here we have the usual suspects, plus some peanut butter and peanut butter cups.

 Yummy!! I consider it an accomplishment just to have these make it into the cookies. They are dangerous to have near me!

 Mix it up!!

 Egg and vanilla- meet sugar, butter, and peanut butter.

 Here, have some flour!

 My BKFF, Best Kitchen Friend Forever- my cookie scoop.

 Preparing these little balls of dough is probably the part that takes the most time. This is how I do it to save some sanity... Scoop out small balls of dough...

 Roll them 'til they're smooth and pretty...

 Put them in a bowl and cover with sugar...

 And shake!! Shake it, shake it! Like a Polaroid picture! ;)

 Drop them into a mini muffin pan.

 Make a peanut butter cup sized (totally a common measurement...) indent and fill with a peanut butter cup.

 I usually store my PB Cups in the freezer. Makes it easier to work with since they don't melt as easily that way.

 Bake away! Let cool on wire rack. Completely! I tried to pull a few out too soon and it wasn't pretty.

 Let them hang out for a little bit until they are nice and set. You can go straight to eating them here, or....

 ... drizzle with some melted chocolate!

 Oh, yeah... :)

 I may be in love.

*1 1/2 cups flour
*3/4 tsp baking soda
*1/2 tsp salt
*1/2 cup butter, softened
*1 cup peanut butter
*1 cup sugar, plus extra to roll dough in
*1 egg
*2 tsp vanilla
*Peanut butter cups (about 50)

Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside. In a larger bowl, using a mixer beat together butter and peanut butter. Add sugar and beat well. Add egg and vanilla, and beat until smooth. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Scoop small balls of dough and roll in sugar.Place in mini muffin tin. Insert peanut butter cup into the top center of each cookie. Bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes. (8 minutes worked perfectly for me!) Let cool completely before removing from pan. Drizzle top with melted chocolate if desired.... Enjoy!
