Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
I made these recently for my cookie exchange party..
and ever since i’ve been getting e-mails and comments wanting the recipe. so here you go! 
i found the recipe on the back of a Reese’s bag!! 
These made up soooo easy. i was shocked how fast. 
i even doubled it the first time and it still made up fast. 
The best part is that majority of the ingredients i already had..just had to grab some Reese’s candies!
And any recipe that doesn’t call for a million ingredients i have to go out and get is awesome.
Fast and easy. you need to make these up!
They are like a fancy peanut blossoms (another childhood favorite..already posted that recipe here). 
I love my miniature cupcake pan..and am happy to have found another great recipe to use it for. :)
