Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Hold that thought on these delicious cookies, can I just say that I am hating how my pictures are turning out! I only have myself to blame, since I am the one controlling the camera. I have been trying to read the book:

My in-laws gave it to me for Christmas. I thank them for it!! Now I just need to find time to sit down and read it. I have read a little of it and from what I read the author is very informative! The first thing she said to do is get off the AUTO setting. Uh, if you haven't noticed by now, that is what my camera is still on. I think once I finish this post I will sit down and read my camera manual so I can move on from these less then pleasing photos, and teach myself how to do a nicer arrangement of the food I am trying to present to you. 

Any way, on to the cookie recipe!
 I love peanut butter. I love chocolate. What is even better is when they are combined! What could be even better is when you take a cookie and add Reese's Cups to it! I made these cookies for the Hubby for his Christmas gift to his fellow co-workers. They were a hit! Most of them were gone before their shift was over. I can only eat one or two of these cookies at time, they are a little on the rich side for me. I could easily eat a few more though if I had a large glass of milk to wash them down with! 
I like to eat them while they are still warm, the chocolate is still kind of melted, pure goodness!!

Peanut Butter Cups 

1/2 cup peanut butter
