My husband's favorite candy is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and his favorite cookie is Peanut Butter...so what would be a better treat to make for him than these! I can combine his two favorite sweets and hopefully he'll like them.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, slightly softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Sift flour, soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
Beat butter and peanut butter
Add sugar and beat until fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla.
Add flour mixture and combine.
Roll dough into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls in sugar to coat.
Press rolled balls into the cavities of a mini muffin tray.
Place an unwrapped Reese’s peanut butter cup into each.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Remove. Let cool and then drizzle with chocolate if desired.
