Valentine Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Happy Valentine's Day Eve! Today I wanted to share these easy peanut butter cookie cups. They are the perfect treat for Valentine's Day - you can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!


1/2 cup butter softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp. vanilla

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Mix butter, vanilla, and sugars. Add peanut butter until combined then add egg. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture slowly until combined. Use small cookie scoop to scoop out dough. Roll into balls and place in greased mini muffin tray. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Don't over-bake. The cookie cups will need to cool in the tray so they will bake a little more after they come out of the oven. Press peanut butter cups into cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. It helps to unwrap all the peanut butter cups while the cookies are baking to ensure they are ready to press in right when the cookies come out of the oven. You can use Reese's peanut butter cups or any ones you like. My favorites are the dark chocolate peanut butter cups from Trader Joe's. Optional for Valentine's Day, you can press a large heart sprinkle on top when the peanut butter cups are melted. Let the cookie cups completely cool before you take them out of the muffin tray. I used a silicone tray to ensure they came out easily and didn't break. These are so easy and delicious! Enjoy!
