Peanut Butter Cup Blossoms

So when I made Peanut Butter Blossoms I decided to also make some with Reese Cups instead of Kisses. Well, they turned out awesome! You could actually do your recipe with half Reese Cups & half Kisses. You would be a hero to some ;-) I bought several bags of Reese Cups on halloween clearance with the intent to bake with them. This one was great!

1 c shortening
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c peanut butter
3 1/2 c self rising flour
2 tbsp milk
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (unwrapped - kids are a great help)

Cream shortening, sugar & brown sugar until fluffy. Add eggs & peanut butter. Mix. Add flour & milk. Mix until combined. Roll dough into balls about the size of a walnut. Place on a greased cookie sheet & bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Remove quickly & press a peanut butter cup in the center of each ball. Return to oven & bake 5 more minutes. Remove & cool on a wire rack.

Yield: 7-8 dozen (recipe can be halved or you can freeze cookies for a later use)
