  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar and butter. Stir in the peanut butter, then the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the peanut butter mixture until the dough comes together. Shape into 1 inch balls and press them into the cups of an unprepared mini muffin pan.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a mini chocolate covered peanut butter cup down into the center of each cookie until only the top is showing. Allow the cookies to cool completely before removing from their pans.

Theses cookies are delicious. A word of caution:make sure you wait until the cookies are completely cool, like suggested. I left mine for two hours to cool, if you try and remove them too soon, the small outer circle, around where you pushed in the peanut butter cup will be pulled off~of course you can still eat the bottom of the cookie but it's best to wait. Also mine took about 12 minutes to bake, they don't really brown but they start to look dry and a bit cracked when done. Thanks for sharing!


I loved these cookies. My only suggestion is to put the pb cups in the freezer for a little while, and it makes them easier to put into the cookies when they come out. They won't melt in your hands! Overall great recipe!


These came out wonderful! I would suggest, however, to not press down the dough in the mini muffin pan. Just roll it into 1 inch size balls and place it into the pan. Also, the peanut butter cup will take a while to cool off completely. I would put them in the fridge for about an hour (after you cool them to around room temperature) before you try to stack them without smudging.
