Mini Peanut Butter Cup Kisses

In keeping with my "let's make as many cookies out of Halloween as we can" theory, I present to you today's cookie of the day.

Noah is a Resses' Peanut Butter Cup fanatic. It has been his go to candy bar since he was 5. When I presented him with this cookie, he actually hugged me! If you have a a tween you can understand why that made me so happy.

These Mini Peanut Butter Cup Kisses didn't last long.

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
24 mini peanut butter cups
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars
Add egg, milk and vanilla
Slowly stir in flour, baking soda and salt
Shape dough into balls
Bake for about 8-10 minutes
While cookies are baking, unwrap mini peanut butter cups
Immediately after taking the cookies out of the oven place peanut butter cups in the center of the cookie
Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute
Remove to cooling rack
