Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

What goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter? This recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups is kind of a spin on those oh-so-famous cookies you make at Christmas, Peanut Butter Blossoms. But instead of chocolate kisses, this is peanut butter on peanut butter using Reese’s Peanut Butter cups set into peanut butter cookies. Sounds amazing, right?
