Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Can I just say something? I feel such happiness when I bake or cook something. Is that weird?

That being said, I haven't cooked or baked anything in quite some time. First it was Softball/Little League games, then All Stars, then intense heat & humidity where no one felt like eating, then my son's tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy. I just haven't been in the kitchen at all. No dinners, no desserts...nothing.

Well, my son has finally made it through the 2 week recovery period & is able to eat solid food. Thank goodness! Not only did I cook dinner, but I had to make something sweet as well.

These peanut butter cup cookies were simple to make & oh so delicious! Perhaps even a tad too sweet, but we gobbled them up anyway.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature peanut butter cups unwrapped (I put mine in the fridge after I unwrapped them. They were starting melt.)

Preheat over to 375 degrees. Sift together the flour, salt & baking soda; set aside.

Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter & brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla & milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well. Shape into 40 balls and place each into ungreased mini muffin pans.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool & carefully remove from pan.
