Ingredients:  
c. butter
c. peanut butter
c. sugar
c. brown sugar
1 egg
tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
1 package small peanut butter cups

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 350.

Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Add flour, soda and salt. Roll into 1 balls. Put balls into mini muffin pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes. (They brown quickly!) Remove from oven when top puffs and they turn light brown. Place muffin pan on wire rack. While the cookies are hot, push peanut butter cups into center until even with the top of the muffin tin. The peanut butter cup will melt slightly and then firm up again after the cookie cools.

If adding sprinkles for holiday decorations, wait until the tops of the peanut butter cups melt a little (they will turn glossy). Add the sprinkles and let cool.

Hints:
1. Use a small cookie scoop to measure out all of your balls of dough before you start baking. Place on wax paper and count the number.
2. Unwrap the same number of peanut butter cups (plus one extra for yourself).
3. Take the cookie out when it is puffed and only slightly brown. Watch them carefully because they really do brown quickly. They will finish cookie in the pan when you take it out.
3. The cookies cool quickly. Be ready to put the peanut butter cups in right away after you take them from the oven. This is a good recipe to make with a friend!

Personal Notes:
My kids love these! I consider them to be somewhat tedious as you need to measure the balls of dough, roll them, and unwrap all of the peanut butter cups but they are well worth it. Make sure to eat one when they are warm. Add sprinkles to the tops for a touch of color. Kyle puts 3-4 on a plate with a glass of milk. Kane puts the entire cookie in his mouth at one time. Either way works!
