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 egg
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.
