Reese Peanut Butter Cookies

I have always loved peanut butter cookies but for some reason no one else in my family really enjoys them. So I don't tend to make them very often. Well then the idea hit me to put Reese peanut butter cups into the peanut butter batter. And let me tell you all my family loves them now. I guess a little chocolate goes along way. 

-1 cup shortening
-1 cup peanut butter
-1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1 1/2 teaspoons basking soda
-2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 1/4 cup flour
-12 Reese peanut butter cups or more if desired. 

-Mix peanut butter and shortening together well.
-Add sugars, baking soda, eggs, and vanilla, mix well.
-Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until all is mixed in well.
-Chop Reese cups into 8th and mix into batter lightly.
-Preheat oven to 350
-Place cookies 1 inch apart on cookie sheet
-Bake for 10 minutes. 

Enjoy the heck out of these cookies! You can always had more Reese peanut butter cups then I suggested. I think next time I will make them, I will try adding more. These cookies went so fast. Like 30 minutes fast! Enjoy.
