Cookie of the Week!- Peanut Butter Temptations

A few weeks back, my mom's group had a cookie exchange. While all the cookies were super yummy, I did pick 2 to make for my Christmas cookies this year. This was one of them! It was a super easy, and fairly inexpensive one to make. So here it is...

About 40 Reese's Peanut butter cups, miniatures
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Heat oven to 375. Remove wrappers from candies. Line small muffin cups with paper bake cups. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla until fluffy in a large bowl. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Shape dough into 1" balls; place one in each paper-lined or ungreased muffin cup. Do not flatten. Bake 10-12 min, until puffed and lightly browned; remove from oven. Immediately press peanut butter cup in center of each cookie. Cool completely in muffin pan.

See how easy was that???
