Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

For Christmas, my daughter's class created a class cookbook.  This is part of the opening:

When it's cold outside and there is nothing to do.
Open this cookbook and out of the blue
You will find many yummy treats, 
Delicious recipes you will love to eat.
Instead of turning the television on, 
We can make something good that will not last long.

We have had a great time picking her friends' recipes; she has a story to go with each recipe.  I hope she will share a story each time we use it (like I do when I hang my student's ornaments on my tree).

We plan to make these, package them in cellophane, and tie with red ribbon as a small gift on Valentine's Day.  I will be taking all of those leftover Reese's cups that were in stockings, on cookie trays, and on sale counters; they will all go in the freezer until February when I make them as small gifts.
