• Stuffed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

    Every now and then things just work out, don’t they? I was bemoaning the fact that I just didn’t have the time to bake this week…and I REALLY wanted to bake these delicious stuffed peanut butter cookies…when our aunt, Missy Jones, walked in the door. Low and behold, the woman was carrying my cookies! Before you buy your ingredients or start to bake, be sure you see my note at the bottom of the page.

    I was at the lake and did not get a great photo of these. Because they are made in a muffin tin, they are a thicker cookie, which is why the candy works well.
