Favorite Christmas Cookie

Good Morning~

   I thought I would share with you my family's favorite cookie recipe. It has been a favorite for about the past 5 years. The recipe came from my aunt (not sure where she found it~maybe on a peanut butter cup bag).

Peanut Butter Temptations

1/2 cup butter                             1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter     1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup suger                  3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar        1/2 tsp.salt
1 egg                               2 bags mini peanut butter cups

Combine all ingredients except peanut butter cups & mix well. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees .Lightly spray your mini tart pan with cooking spray. Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon dough into each of your mini tart pans.

Form your dough up the sides of your pan like you would be making a pie crust~leave the center empty (this is where the peanut butter cup will go).

Bake your cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. Make sure they don't brown too much.

Take out of the oven and let cool for 1-2 minutes. To remove from pan, lightly twist the cookies before removing. Put on cooling rack and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie.

Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Enjoy the recipe! Have a great day!
