  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp milk I use 2% but any kind is fine
  • 36-40 mini peanut butter cups unwrapped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray & set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, & salt.
  • In large mixer bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar & peanut butter until fluffy.
  • Beat in egg, vanilla & milk.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Roll dough into balls & place in prepared pan. Leave in ball form- do not flatten
  • Bake 7-8 minutes. They should look puffy, not browned on the sides.

  • Allow to fully cool before removing from pan as the peanut butter cups will be gooey and the cookie cups need to set to hold their shape.
