Mini PB Cup Cookies

These peanut butter cup cookies are so delicious and super cute!  Bite size cookies are my new favorite thing!!  The only problem is you eat more of them, but still they are good!  These cookies are about the size of a quarter.  I got this recipe from another blog called and she makes some amazing stuff!

WARNING!  This recipe makes billions of these little cookies... so if you don't want to spend your whole day rolling cookie dough into balls then you might want to 1/2 the recipe or freeze some of the dough.

WARNING 2!  You need to refrigerate the dough for about 2 hours, so plan for that...

Cookie Recipe:
1 Cup Butter- unsalted and room temperature
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
2 Eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Trader Joe's Mini Peanut Butter Cups
  1. In your Kitchen Aid mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars together on medium speed.  
  2. Add peanut butter, mix.  (I like to spray whatever I am using to measure the pb with pam spray so that it comes out of the measuring cup smoothly...)
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mix until combined.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients.  Stir until just combined.
  5. Chill dough for at least 2 hrs.
  6. Preheat to 350.
  7. Roll into 1/4 teaspoon sized balls.  Roll each ball in reserved granulated sugar.
  8. Smoosh pb cup into ball and bake for 5-6 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
