Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

 Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

original recipe:

  • 36-48 miniature peanut butter cups
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


Place peanut butter cups in the freezer (there’s no need to unwrap them; just place the whole bag in the freezer) for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flours, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 – 3 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

Add the flour mixture. Mix until a soft dough forms.

Shape into 1-inch balls. Press dough balls into ungreased mini muffin tins, making an indentation in the middle with your thumb.

Bake in preheated oven for 8-11 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a miniature peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie.

Cool and remove from pan.
