These cookies are very peanut butter-y, with a mini peanut butter cup in the center. (The kind with the cookie center is great in this recipe!) My mom got this recipe from a friend who is allergic to sugar! So this poor soul makes treats and brings them to her friends to let her know if they are good or not.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease mini muffin pans. Sift together the flour and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, and shortening. Add the peanut butter and egg; mix until blended. Stir in the milk and vanilla alternately with the dry ingredients. Press rounded tablespoons of dough into the prepared mini muffin cups. Press dough up the sides of the cup, leaving a hole in the middle. Press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cup, being careful not to push all the way through the dough.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool completely before removing from pans.

Since I didn't have muffin pan, I dropped dough on cookie sheet, baked about 8 minutes and pressed peanut butter cup in immediately after removing from oven. Awesome! Thanks for a great recipe.

These were a big hit in my house!! Not only did my 2 kids LOVE the, but so didn't all of their friends. Soon, I was baking dozens for not only my kids lunches but all of their friends also! Too funny! Try any recipe by "Heather" - they are all fabulous!
