Peanut Butter Reese's Cup Cookies (Heaven)

I recently posted a picture of some cookies I made and a couple people asked for the recipe, so I figured I would share it with the blog world.

The peanut butter cookie recipe is my grandma's recipe and I just added a little twist with the reese's cups.  Who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate?!?

1 cup shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 bag miniature reese's cups

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl
3. Grease a mini muffin pan
4. Roll dough in a small ball and put in muffin pan (filled about 3/4 full)
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes
6. While the cookies are baking, unwrap the reese's cups.
7. Take out of the oven and push a miniature reese's cup in each one

Warning: This recipe makes about 72 cookies and they are HIGHLY addictive!!! Enjoy!
