You know me and my peanut butter addiction. So when I saw these I had to try them.
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 pinch salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners. and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, shortening and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. Spoon into the prepared cup liners.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top of the cupcakes spring back when lightly pressed. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Drizzle these with melted chocolate or top with chocolate icing!
