Miniature Peanut Butter Treats

Over the holidays, the Nordic Needle staff baked up a storm. One of the much anticipated treats came from Gwen, who is in Bookkeeping. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

Miniature Peanut Butter Treats

  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 c 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 one 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.
