Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I went to a 4th of July Celebration and tried some Snickers Cookies.  They were peanut butter cookies with a miniature Snickers baked in the middle.   I liked them a lot so I thought I'd give them a shot.  Except I had to add my own twist, of course.  I started out with this cookie dough recipe, although I changed it up a little bit.  Then I experimented with a bunch of candy.  I finally settled on Reeses Peanut Butter cups.  

Here's what I used:
1 Cup of Butter, Room Temperature
¾ Cup Light Brown Sugar
¼ White Sugar
3.2 oz French Vanilla Pudding Mix
2 Eggs
 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
2 ¼ Cups All Purpose White Flour
¼ Cup 2% Milk
1 Bag Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
Here's What I did:
1.  Preheated the oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Creamed together butter and sugars.
3.  Added the pudding mix to the butter/sugar mix.  Mixed well.
4.  Added vanilla and eggs to that mixture.  Mixed well.
5.  In a separate bowl, I combined the baking soda, salt, and flour.
6.  Slowly added the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mixing well.  I found my dough to be a little dry, so I added the milk to get it to the right consistency.  You may not need the milk.  It's possible that you could need more or less milk.
7.  Unwrapped the peanut butter cups.  Made a ball out of the dough.  Put the peanut butter cup in the middle of the dough and rolled the dough around the peanut butter cup. 
8.  Baked for about 8 minutes.  Take the cookies out of the oven when they are golden brown.  Here are what mine looked life fresh out of the oven:
Let them cool before eating them.

Oh my! Wow! I love Reese's and these were amazing. The cookie batter was so moist and yummy with the pudding in the mix. Tel suggested I add mini chocolate chips to the batter next time. These were too good to share!
