Flatten the gumdrops; cut into small leaf shapes and set aside. In a mixing

the egg, milk and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and
salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls.

10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and
immediately lightly press one peanut butter cup, cut side down, into each

flowers. Cool on wire racks. Yield about 5 dozen.
