1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a mixer beat butter and peanut butter for 30 seconds. Add 1/2 cup of the flour, sugars, egg, baking soda, baking powder,and vanilla. Beat until combined, beat in remaining flour. Roll into small balls then place in a mini muffin tin. Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven press a mini peanut butter cup into each cookie. Cool for about 10 minutes before taking cookies out of tin. Best when they have cooled for about 1 hour. They also freeze well and taste great frozen.
