Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

It's probably a little late for another Christmas cookie post, but I figure this cookie can be for more than just Christmas...so I might as well share. These little guys are cute, simple and Rob's favorite cookie....

Mix up the dough and the refrigerate..... seriously...refrigerate the dough for a while...otherwise you will have a big sticky doughy mess, if you let it chill for a little bit, the dough will be much easier to form into little balls....which is the next step...that I forgot to photograph...so anyway... refrigerate the dough, roll into small balls pop into a mini muffin pan and bake....


While they are baking, start unwrapping the reese cups and pop them in the freezer for a few minutes just long enough to put a lil chill on them...then when the cookies come out of the oven, press the Reese Cups into each cookie.

As if a reese cup isnt delicious enough...this one has a peanut butter cookie wrapped around it!



Enjoy!
