Miniature Peanut Butter Cup Treats

Grandma B has been making these for us for many years, and they have always been a favorite. For the first time I have started making them, too. They are an incredible treat if you love chocolate and peanut butter, and they are so easy to make. I don't chill the dough, but you may find it easier to roll if you do.

Miniature Peanut Butter Cup Treats

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup creamy-style peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
About 42 miniature peanut butter-chocolate cups
Combine butter, sugars, egg, peanut butter and vanilla in mixing bowl; beat until smooth. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture. Cover dough and chill. When cold enough to handle easily, roll in small (walnut-sized balls); place each ball in greased miniature muffin tin. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven; gently press 1 peanut butter cup into each cookie to make depression. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool on rack. Store in cool place until serving time. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen cookies.
