reese's pieces cookies recipe

I am not feeling well today so this is going to be short.  I know better than to blog after taking a large shot of Nyquil.  These Reese’s Pieces cookies were so popular here, that I think that this batch lasted about 4 hours.  They look like they are going to be a firm, hearty, cookie, but really, they are very delicate.  Almost like a little chocolate cake.  But with the addition of crunchy, salty, and sweet peanut butter candies.  Anything that is a combo of salty and sweet gets me, and these cookies hit all of my happy places.  Soft, crunchy, salty, sweet.  Make these over the weekend for a nice lunchbox treat on Monday.  You will have some very happy little people.

This recipe comes from Betty Crocker.

    Yum! I think I will try making these with chopped up normal reese’s pieces because I am afraid they will be too sweet with the candy coating on these! Love your blog! :)

    Would these work if I substituted egg beaters for the egg in this recipe (I don’t buy regular eggs)?
