  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 24 mini peanut butter cups


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 24-cup miniature muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, mix butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla until smooth. Finally mix in peanut butter and flour mixture.
  • Fill each miniature muffin cup with about one tablespoon of batter. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly golden and puffed around the edges. Meanwhile, unwrap the peanut butter cups.
  • Remove from oven and immediately press one peanut butter cup into the middle of each cookie until level.
  • Cool 10-15 minutes in the pan, and the cup will be partially melted and shiny. Remove from pan and let cool on a rack.



  • For the best results, use a creamy peanut butter where the oil doesn't separate out.
  • When you remove the cookies from the oven, it's OK if the they could collapse a little bit.
