Posted By~Scissors~scissorsanddrumsticks.com

1 1/4 Cups Packed Light Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter

1/2 Crisco Stick or 1/2 Cup Vegetable Shortening

3tbsp Milk

1tbsp Vanilla Extract (we make our own)

1 Egg

1 3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour

3/4tsp Baking Soda

3/4tsp Salt

1 Bag Regular Sized Peanut Butter Cups(Reese’s)

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl until well blended. Add egg, beat until blended.

In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, & salt. Add shortening to mixture and beat JUST UNTIL blended.

**Refrigerate for 15 minutes**

Shape dough into half-dollar sized balls (quarter size if using mini peanut butter cups). Placce 2″ apart on cookie sheet and bake for 9-12 minutes(less time for smaller cookies).

Remove cookies from oven and IMMEDIATELY place peanut butter cup on top of cookie. Let cool completely.

Scissors’ Notes: I usually double this recipe which will make about 42 mini up cookies or 36 regular size cup cookies.
