Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from peanut butter cups. Line 60 small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) with paper bake cups, if desired.


Beat peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking mix, butter, egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt until fluffy in large bowl. Shape dough into 60 equal balls (about 1 inch); place one in each paper-lined or ungreased muffin cup. Do not flatten.


Bake 10 to 12 minutes until puffed and lightly browned; remove from oven. Immediately press peanut butter cup in center of each cookie. Cool completely in muffin pan on wire rack. Makes 5 dozen cookies.


Always read labels of each ingredient to ensure that they are gluten free prior to use.
