Sprinkled With Love

Welcome to Sprinkled With Love! I started this blog in 2009 when I started taking Wilton cake decorating classes, as a way to share my decorated cakes with others. Since then my family & friends have kept me busy creating birthday cakes, wedding cakes & more. Sprinkled with love has grown to be so much more since then. Please take a look around to see what I have been up to, and remember, share some love and leave a comment!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter Recipe #2: Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I was first introduced to Peanut Butter Cup Cookies by my sister-in-law a few years back.  Since then I have found the following recipe online at allrecipes.com and I use it all the time.  I make these cookies at Christmas to share with family and friends and they are always a hit.


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


1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.

2.Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk.

3. Add the flour mixture; mix well.

4.Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
5.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.

A few changes I have made:

I usually make them in a regular size muffin pan. Of course, you will only get 20-30 cookies instead of 40. 
I used half a teaspoon vanilla extract and half a teaspoon almond extract last time and they turned out great.
