Peanut Butter Babies

Our oldest is a huge peanut butter/chocolate fan.  I found this recipe years ago thinking he would love it.  Not only did he fall in love with these cute little bite sized cookies, we were all smitten!  The peanut butter chocolate cup is perfectly nestled in a chewy peanut butter cookie.  You can eat it right away while the chocolate is still melted and gooey or wait until it cools and sets.  If you can wait that long.  Either way, they're sure to be a hit!

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBS milk
40 mini chocolate covered peanut butter cups

-  Preheat oven to 375.  Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
-  Cream together butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy.  Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk.  Add the flour mixture; mix well.  Shape into walnut sized balls.  place each into a greased (or use a paper liner) mini muffin tin.
-  Bake for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball.  Cool completely before removing from pan.
