  • Miniature muffin tin



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line mini muffin tins with mini cupcake liners.
  • Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together.  
  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together.  Blend into creamed mixture.
  • Roll dough into balls about nickel-size in diameter.
  • Place dough balls into cupcake liners.
  • Bake for 10 minutes (now is a good time to unwrap the Reese's miniature peanut butter cups).
  • Remove from oven and let cool for only 1 minute.
  • Press a Reese's miniature peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie.
  • Allow cookies to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.  


Cupcake liners are not necessary.  Spray the mini muffin tin well with cooking spray before adding cookie dough balls.  After cookies have cooled 5 minutes, run a knife around the edge of each cookie before removing them from the muffin tin.
