Reeses Pieces Cookies


This was a completely random recipe. The recipe on the back of the Reeses Pieces wanted oatmeal cookies and I didn't feel like doing that; plus I had used the rest of the shortening on the Chocolate Caramel Cookies.
So I decided to randomly make my own cookie dough. Its pretty similar to chocolate chip cookie dough because I figured that would work best. I don't actually have a chocolate chip recipe, I just use the one on the back of the chips. I was too lazy to look one up, so I just added the basic ingredients until it looked right.

Servings: 4 dozen

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • Reeses Pieces minis
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Stir to combine.
4. Slowly add flour into creamed mixture, about 3/4 of a cup at a time.
5. Pour 1/2 bag of Reeses Pieces into a bowl. 
6. Drop teaspoon sized balls of dough onto the cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly brown.
7. Press Reeses pieces into cookies. Work quickly!
8. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then cool for 10-15 minutes or a wire rack.

I tried some of these by adding the pieces onto the dough before I baked it, but I didn't think they turned out as pretty looking. They kind of melted into the dough and the colors spread.
