Peanut Butter Temptations
In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture. Beat on low speed just until combined.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place in greased 1-3/4-inch* (mini) muffin cups. Bake about 8 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
When cookies are done, remove them from the oven and immediately press an unwrapped peanut butter cup into the center of each. Cool in a pan on a wire rack. If desired, drizzle with melted chocolate.
If you don't have small muffin pans, place balls on greased cookie sheets. Don't flatten. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 8 minutes or until golden. Immediately press a peanut butter cup upside down into each cookie. Remove and cool cookies on wire racks.
