    Sharlene~W's Note:

    I found this cookie recipe in First magazine many years ago. It is an excellent soft cookie. These large cookies are perfect for bake sales. If you make smaller cookies (1/8 cup dough per cookie), shorten baking time. This dough also makes an excellent plain cookie--without the peanut butter cup.

      I forgot now that Hersey has come out with the mini's for Reese Cups I'll be using those in place of cutting down the full size candy.. that will also cut the making time down a wee bit :)

      I found that these cookies are even better if you use white chocolate and macadamia nuts! They are chewy, just the way I like them. They have a great flavor. They tend to be a big flatter than I like but still worth making. Good recipe.
