Peanut Butter Cup Cookies III

4.2
(16)

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 24 miniature peanut butter cups

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.
