Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Line bottom and sides of 8x8-inch pan with foil. Lightly grease with nonstick spray; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter and peanut butter for one minute, until smooth.  Add the egg and vanilla.  Beat on high for 2 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Gently mix into the wet batter on low speed.  Fold in 3/4 cup of the chopped peanut butter cups.
