These were so yummy especially if you love peanut butter and chocolate!!! I got this recipe from Coleen's recipes. I adapted it a little bit. I am sure they are great the original way but I love butter in my cookies and she used crisco so I changed that and they still turned out wonderful. These are so easy to make but yet so yummy!! They are a great bake sale item or a great cookie to put in your child's school lunch!!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies adapted from Coleen's Recipes
1 cup butter
1 1/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 -3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
36-48 peanut butter cups or caramel cups(I used both and I prefer the caramel cups)
Preheat oven to 350.Cream the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar together. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour and baking soda and mix well. Pat the dough into a regular size muffin tin till each cup is half full with dough. Bake for 10- 11 minutes. Take out and immediately press a peanut butter cup or a caramel cup in to each cookie. Let cool in the muffin tin for about 3- 5 minutes. Wait to eat them until the cup sets back up or eat them my favorite way:
When the chocolate is still gooey!! I think that this idea would be good also if you made a chocolate dough and then put mint cups in the middle or even the caramel ones!!!
