Ingredients

Instructions

  • First start by preheating the oven to 350F.
  • Now, add the peanut butter, butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar and cream for 1-2 minutes. You want the mixture to be light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla and mix for 30 more seconds.
  • Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix again just until the flour disappears. Add in the mini chocolate chips and mix one last time to get them evenly incorporated in the cookie dough. Using a small cookie scooper, scoop out 14 even cookie dough balls and place them in a mini cupcake tin. Bake for 10 minutes, then let the cookie cool completely then carefully remove them from the pan.
  • Once the peanut butter cookie cups are completely cool and out of the pan, you can have them as is of frost them using a 1M wilton piping tip in a piping bag and your store bought chocolate frosting.
