Reeces Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies


Reeces Pieces are one of those things I cannot possibly just have one handful of. I can usually restrain myself if they are in the room, but if I cave and have one, I will likely just keep noming on them until they are totally gone. I know people who are not so into the combining of peanut butter with other already delicious things (like chocolate), and I’ve decided they are totally insane. Peanut butter and chocolate? How does that pose a problem!?

Anyhoo, moving along. I made these a few months ago – actually a little longer ago than that even, but the recipe is good and the pictures make me want to whip up another batch and go hide in the laundry room to eat them. Ahem.

The peanut butter cookie recipe is straight from the much loved (and much falling apart and really super sad looking) Good Housekeeping cookbook I’ve had since just after I got married. For those of you playing along at home, that was approximately eleventy billion years ago. When you’d normally toss in a cup of chocolate chips at the end of the recipe, I tossed in a cup of Reeces Pieces instead. Mmmmm.

Oddly, I was texting with my cousin Jenn while I made them and she had made these cookies the day before, that’s a little weird, yes? Or just proof that we are connected on some weird culinary level? You know because Reeces Pieces chocolate chip cookies are such culinarily advanced treats, dontcha know?!

It’s the simplest thing in the world. Well, very close to it anyway. Mix sugars with butter, add the egg and vanilla. Mix the rest in a separate bowl and then tip that bowl into the wet ingredients. Voila! When it’s all mixed up and you have peanut butter cookie dough, fold in the Reeces Pieces with a wooden spoon (your mixer paddle may crush them) and spoon them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. About a tablespoon each.
