Peanut Butter Muffin Tin Cookies

Posted on


I don’t usually buy Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, but,… these were half-price after Easter.  That’s a good enough excuse, right?  Anyhow,… I bought some and saved them for this.
These sure are easy and quick to make!  I don’t show a picture of these little cookies made with a regular-sized Hershey Kiss on top, but… I think I like those even better than these because they are still very “chocolatey” but do not seem quite as sweeeeeeeeet.
  • 1 and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed


  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream, optional


  • 36-40 miniature chocolate candies–chocolate covered peanut butter cups, OR regular-sized Hershey Kisses.


  • Unwrap the candies (or have a little helper do it for you while you prepare the dough).  Set unwrapped candy aside.
  • Preheat panggangan to 375-degrees F.
  • Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda.  Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk (sour cream, optional).
  • Add the flour mixture; mix well.
  • Shape into about 36 small “balls” and place into an ungreased mini muffin pan like this…


Below:  Because the dough is “sticky”, I found it easier (and quicker) to just use my smallest cookie baller scooper thing and plop each portion into the mini muffin tin (I ended up with 36 “dumps”) like this…



  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes.  If you know your oven’s  temperature is “hotter” or “cooler” than it’s supposed to be, adjust accordingly.  When coming out of the oven, mine looked like this…


  • Fresh out of the oven,  immediately press a little peanut butter cup OR a Hershey Kiss down into the center of each ball.


  • Let them cool, and then carefully remove them from the muffin tin.  I used the tip of a small knife to nudge them loose.  Each one came out easily.


Below:  Here they are– all ready to go to the party with us!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
