I LOVE THE RECIPES I'VE FOUND ON JUST-A-PINCH. I MUST GIVE CREDIT TO TWO LADIES WHO'S RECIPES I COMBINED TO CREATE THIS RECIPE:
Amanda Coon who's recipe for her "Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies" has become a favorite.
And to Mrs. D (Sugar Grace) who's recipe for "Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cups", is another favorite that people ask me for time and time again.

I've made this recipe twice and now have to share the recipe with others.

Thank you ladies for your great recipes and giving me permission to share.
Hope you enjoy!!! Please let me know your thoughts.
