Day 13: Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Today we got to meet Charles. He was really nice and likes kids. Too bad he's moving to Spokane, WA next month. But it sounded like he was interested in coming to the health talk though so maybe we'll see him again then. We had peanut butter cup cookies today, they were pretty good. I made the whole batch and Matt took some to school, I gave some to a friend and the others we gave away and ate. Someone asked a little while ago what I do with all these cookies.. usually there's something to take them to (business club, seminar, family) whatever. And if I can i'll freeze leftover dough until I need/want them for something. But also I eat them..they're actually a large part of my diet =\ I'm kind of surprised I haven't gained any weight yet. In fact I might have lost a pound. Maybe I should start a cookie diet. Anyway, here's the recipe.
* It's a good idea to put the unwrapped peanut butter cups in the freezer for a little while, atleast while the cookies bake, so they don't melt when you put them into the hot cookie.
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.
Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
