Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  I mean, come on, who isn't?

I especially love the Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  They have a higher peanut butter to "cup" ratio (actually don't quote me on that.  It just seems like they do.)  But, you can't go wrong with these little guys. 

So if you like peanut butter cups and you like cookies, then you will really be in heaven with this recipe.  Check it out. 

You will need:
1 bag of Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
1/2 cup. butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use creamy)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together.  Add egg and vanilla.  Beat well.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture.  Place dough in rounded teaspoons in greased mini muffin pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (I cooked mine for 9 minutes and that was just right.)  Right out of the oven, place a mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in the center of each cookie.  Refrigerate until shine from chocolate disappears.  Gently pop out with the tip of a knife.  ~yield: 2 1/2 dozen

I haven't made these for a long time, but decided to make them this afternoon for my scout group (yep, that's right ~ I'm a den mom:)  Someday I'll show you a pic of me in my yellow Scout shirt.  It's hot.  Just kidding.  It is sooo not hot.) 

Anyways, as you can see, my little sidekick had fun helping me prepare the "goods" for our activity. 

The reason I am posting this is because I thought I needed to stop eating them, so I decided to write about them instead. 

So, what is your favorite treat?
