Milky Way & Snickers Cookies

Remember how I said we didn't get any trick-or-treaters this year?  Well, I am finally getting sick of eating bite size candy bars (well, kind-of).  If you are in the same boat, here's a great way to get rid of some of that candy.
I mean, really, what could go wrong with this recipe?  Putting a candy bar inside of a cookie?!  Seems like a no-brainer to me!
These cookies are unreal right out of the oven with the chocolately caramely center that oozes out when you bite into them.  But they are equally good the next day, dunking the crunchy cookie into a big glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.  They're just good.  That's really all there is to it.

MILKY WAY & SNICKERS COOKIES (*Makes 2 dozen - Usually, double the recipe)
Recipe from Grandma Flinn

1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. vegetable shortening

1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
12 bite size candy bars, cut in half

1.  In a stand mixer, beat sugars and vegetable shortening.  Add peanut butter and vanilla, blend together.  Add egg and beat until combined.
