Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

Did you know today is I Love Reese’s Day?

I had no idea there was even such a day.

It’s probably unofficial, but I love any holiday designed to celebrate food!

I love cookies, I love making cookies, and I really really love jumbo monster cookies.

I love cookies that are huge, filled with goodies and soft and tender. PERFECTION!

And, I love Reese’s Pieces. I remember watching E.T. the movie and seeing Drew Barrymore placing the candies on the ground, I was a bit older than her, but I saw her as myself, a little blonde girl who wanted to be sweet and play. When I first saw it, I thought they were M&M’s as the Pieces weren’t as popular. I have been hooked on them since.  What’s not to love about sweet peanutty bits on and in a cookie?

My Reese’s pieces peanut butter cookies recipe is a big one. I love to mix up a big batch once, sort my cookie dough into patties, quick freeze them and then pop them into a gallon freezer baggies.

That way, I always have cookie dough waiting to be baked off, and we can pretty much have fresh cookies all the time.

In a mixer -

add 2 cups butter

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

2 cups brown sugar

cream together, then add

3 eggs

3 tsp vanilla

mix well into the batter.

Now add 2 tblsp. cornstarch

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

6.5 cups of flour

1/2 bag of 12 0z bag of reese’s pieces

2 cups of chocolate chips

 

Once you have a firm batter, remove from mixer and ball into golf ball sized piece of dough.

Take the remaining amount of pieces and put them in a bowl.

Take the ball of cookie dough and press one side into the Reese’s pieces.

Put them on a parchment covered cookie sheet. At this point you can freeze them or bake them right off.

Don’t they look good? I could eat them up just like that.

Once you are ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and bake them for about 15-18 minutes. You want them to be set up but not very browned.
