Reese Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies with Reese Peanut Butter Cups

I was trying to clean my baking cupboard this afternoon and found an overwhelming amount of christmas chocolates left to use up. I had been melting most of the plain chocolate into candy cane bark but still had more to use – including a bag full of Reese’s Peanut Butter Bells. So, naturally – the only thing better than Reese’s – would be Reese’s wrapped in cookies. I made a couple adjustments to a recipe I found online and came up with this – delicious!!!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups/Bells in this case

Beat butter, shortening, and sugars until well blended. Mix in egg. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; blend into butter mixture. Stir in oatmeal. Stir in peanut butter cups.  Drop by the tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets/parchment paper bake at 350 for about 12 minutes. Let cool – if you can – Enjoy!
