Ultimate Filled Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is from Lara at the Recipe Shoebox.

1 bag of miniature Reese's peanut butter cups --FROZEN
1-1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco (no substitutions)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the Crisco, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla until it is smooth and creamy. Next add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place them in an UNgreased mini muffin pan.

Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.

Immediately press a FROZEN miniature Reese's PB cup into the center of each cookie--pressing down until the top of the candy is at the same level as the top of the cookie.

Allow to cool in the pan for at least 2 minutes before removing them. To remove, insert just the tip of a thin knife between the cookie and the pan. Allow to cool completely and the chocolate to reset before serving. Makes about 30-36 cookies (mini-muffin size).
