    2. 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 forty balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
    3. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from the pan.

    Reindeer Cookies

    Ingredients: 1 cup each of softened butter, sugar, and smooth peanut butter; 2 eggs; 1 tsp vanilla; ½ tsp salt; 3 cups all-purpose flour; 2 tsp baking soda; mini pretzel twists; chocolate chips; red M&M’s

    Directions: 

    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

    3. Roll dough into balls. Flatten each ball and shape into an upside-down triangle. Press two pretzels into the two top corners of each triangle for the antlers. Press two chocolate chips into the center of each triangle for the eyes, and one chocolate chip or M&M on the bottom of the triangle for the nose. Arrange cookies on baking sheets.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
