Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, and salt.

  • Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add egg allowing to blend into butter mixture. Beat in vanilla extract. Mix in flour mixture and milk until just incorporated.

  • Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
