Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Vicki Wolf


Our Family took the Peanut Butter Blossom recipe with the "Kiss" and modified it a many years ago to use mini muffin pan instead of a cookie sheet, replacing the kiss with the mini peanut butter cup. It has been a family favorite ever since. This is a wonderful cookie for the holidays especially for the peanut butter lover. Variations of it can be found on line. In addition, you can mix-up one batter and make both the kiss and peanut butter cup cookies.
