Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in 3/4 cups sugar in a small bowl.
Place 2 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Top each cookie immediately with a peanut butter cup, placed upside down. Remove cookies from the and put them on a wire rack with a spatula to cool for 5 minutes.
