Peanut Butter and Chocolate
Muffin Tin Cookies
These yummy peanut butter cup cookies are made in a muffin tin! This makes them extra thick and chewy. This recipe starts out with a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe. Once that is made, drop the dough by spoonfuls into muffin tins (un-greased). Throw the pan into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Don’t over bake these- you want the cookies to just be set. Remove the pan from the oven, and press a mini peanut butter cup into the middle of each cookie. Let them cool completely before you remove the cookies from the muffin tin.
Once they are cooled you can remove them from the pan and set them on a cooling rack. Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. Only if you don’t eat them all the day you cooked them…

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a mini muffin pan . I have two, and the cookie recipe fills two pans exactly.
Combine all dry ingredients in bowl. Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. With wooden spoon, or spatula, add dry ingredients and chocolate chips all at once. Mix just until flour is incorporated with butter mixture.
Drop by spoonfuls into muffin tins. Bake for 8-9 minutes just until set. After removing pan from oven, press a mini peanut butter cup into the middle of the cookie. Let cool completely.
Yields 48 cookies.
Rollo's are also good in place of the Reese's.
