Step 6:

Place the tray inside the preheated oven and bake the cookies for about 9 to 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned and firm on the edges, but still soft in the middle. While waiting, remove the foil wraps and paper liners from each of the peanut butter cups.

Step 7:

Once done baking, remove the cookies from the oven and place them on a wire rack. While still warm, gently press one peanut butter cup into the center of each one. Let them cool completely for about 1 to 2 hours before removing them from the muffin tray.
