Peanut Butter Temptations

54 Prep: 30 minutes
Bake: 8 minutes


* 1/2  cup  butter
* 1/2  cup  peanut butter
* 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
* 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
* 1    egg
* 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
* 1-1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
* 3/4  teaspoon  baking soda
* 1/2  teaspoon  salt
* 54  bite-size  chocolate-covered peanut butter cups
*     Melted semisweet chocolate


1. 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.

2. Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture. Beat on low speed just until combined.

3. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place in greased 1-3/4-inch* muffin pans. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 8 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

4. Meanwhile, unwrap peanut butter cups. When cookies are done, remove them from the oven and immediately press a peanut butter cup into the center of each. Cool in a pan on a wire rack. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Makes 54.

*Note: 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.
