Mini Reese's Cup Cookies

I tried something a little different with my cookies last week. I made one of my regular dough recipes, and baked it in mini muffin tins with mini Reese's cups. These Reese's cups are the unwrapped kind (see pic at the bottom) and are a little smaller than the regular mini Reese's cups. They also have mini Rolos, Snickers bites, and a few others that would be yummy too.

Mini Reese's Cup Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 8oz bag Reese's minis

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray. Cream butter and sugars until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until light and creamy.
2. In medium bowl whisk together flours, soda, and salt. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture until combined. Dough will be stiff.
3. Using a cookie scoop (1 TBSP), place balls of dough into mini muffin tin. Press a mini Reese's cup into the center of each ball of dough.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove from pan and continue cooling on wire rack. If any of them stick to the pan, run a knife around the edge. Makes about 60 cookies.
