These Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies were a big hit with my family the first day I made them. They are addictive so make sure you make enough of them or your loved ones will complain.
My husband and kids are addict to Reese’s, When I decided to make Reese’s pieces cookies, their expectations where rather high, and apparently this recipe didn’t disappoint. These Reese’s pieces cookies were so popular that I think this batch lasted about 4 hours.
They look like they are going to be firm, hearty, cookies, 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.

Step 1: Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping the bowl a few times.
Step 2: Add the vanilla and egg.
Step 3: Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
Step 4: Mix until the dough comes together.
Step 5: Add Reese’s Pieces and blend until they are incorporated. Do not mix too much, or the Reese’s will break.
Step 6: Drop onto parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake for 8 to 12 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven. The edges will be set, and the centers will still be soft.
