Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cups

This cookie recipe has become one of my favorites, despite the fact that peanut butter cookies typically are not a favorite of mine.  I wanted to make a spring version tonight, so I added Reese's Pieces eggs.


I wasn't sure of the best method for shaping the dough and adding the candy, so I made the recipe America's Test Kitchen style and tried four different methods.


The dough shaped before and after baking (on the right below) had a much deeper center that held the candy more easily. 


So the winner was....dough shaped before and after baking, and adding candy after the cookies had completely cooled.  I used a Pampered Chef tart shaper to shape the dough, and a paring knife to remove the cookies from the pan.
