|Reese's Temptation Cookies|
Is there really any better combination than peanut butter and chocolate? I don't think so. Recently, I was asked to make a couple of dozen cookies for a 4-H event and I couldn't decide what I wanted to bring. After looking through my recipes, I decided on these Reese's Temptations. I doubled the recipe so I could make a bigger batch and leave some at home:)!
Reese's Temptation Cookies
About 40 Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Cups
1 stick of butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove wrappers from the candy and put the candy in a bowl. Store in the refrigerator until needed. Line mini muffin cups with paper baking cups. Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, egg and vanilla in a bowl and blend until fluffy. Next add the following ingredients to the mixture, stirring after the addition of each one: flour, baking soda and salt. Shape dough into mini 1 inch balls and place one in each muffin cup. DO NOT FLATTEN THE DOUGH. Bake 10-12 minutes until light brown and somewhat puffy. Remove from the oven and immediately press peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie. Cool completely in the muffin pan. Enjoy.
