Make it yourself Monday. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Let me start by saying that DH is LOVING my new Monday feature. He gets home from work and the house smells of baked goods. He's in heaven! So here's today's recipe. Go...make it yourself!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
About 24 Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Heat oven to 375 degrees F

Combine butter, shortening, peanut butter, sugars and egg in large bowl, mix until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture until blended.

Shape into balls placing two inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly flatten with the back of a spoon and place a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup upside down in the middle of each cookie.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool completely.

ENJOY! With a huge glass of milk of course!

Notes: I use Pampered Chef cooking stones to bake my cookies and they took a bit longer. It was about 13 minutes for me. You just want them to be golden and pretty.
