Mini peanut butter cups tucked inside sugar cookie dough

Ingredients
  

  • 1 bag- sugar cookie mix and the ingredients as directed on the bag usually just 1 egg and some butter.
  • 1 bag- Reeses mini peanut butter cups That's it!

Instructions
 

  • Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • Prepare sugar cookie dough according to bag directions (or prepare sugar cookie dough using your favorite recipe).
  • Roll dough into small balls (about 1 tablespoon), and fill mini muffin tin with one ball of dough in each space.
  • Bake cookies 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown on the edges, but still a bit soft in the center.
  • While the cookies bake, unwrap the mini peanut butter cups.
  • Remove tray from oven, and press one peanut butter cup into each warm cookie.
  • Allow cookies to cool (in pan). The peanut butter cup will melt a bit, but then firm up as the cookies cool.
  • Once cool, remove from pan.
  • If desired, melt a bit of chocolate and drizzle over cool cookies, or add some festive sprinkles (while the peanut butter cup is still a little melty).
