  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup shortening room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 36 Reeses Miniatures unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for topping
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for topping


  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Unwrap the miniature Reeses cups and flatten each with your palm.
  • Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a shallow bowl and mix.
  • Beat together shortening and sugar with an electric mixer until combined. Add eggs and mix.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Add to the sugar mixture and beat until fully combined.
  • Using a cookie scoop, roll dough into balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Split each ball in half, flatten one side and top with one smashed Reeses cup. Top with the other half of the dough and roll into a ball, completely covering the Reeses'.
  • Roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. I always take them out at exactly 8 minutes and they come out perfectly. They will look soft and will just start to form cracks around the edges. Let them cool for 5 minutes before removing from the sheet and enjoy!
