Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Snickerdoodles

Author Cathy Trochelman


  • 2 ¾ c. flour
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 c. butter softened
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • For Topping:
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar + 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 package miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


  1. Mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  2. Cream butter, adding 1 ½ c. sugar gradually.
  3. Add beaten eggs to butter/sugar mixture. Mix well.
  4. Gradually add dry ingredients.
  5. Chill dough at least 1 hour.
  6. Shape chilled dough into balls (approx. 1 inch)
  7. Roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture and place in well-greased miniature muffin tins.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees 10 minutes or until set in center.
  9. Immediately press one peanut butter cup into each cookie; cool slightly in muffin tins before removing to wire rack.
  10. When peanut butter cups are partially set but still gooey, top each with a red or green m&m (I used Gingerbread m&m's but any kind would work!)
