Its Tuesday! AND it was a snow day! So you know what that means…Today’s Try It is a yummy treat!
Oh yes! That’s a peanut butter, chocolate chip, Reese’s Pieces cookie! I found this nummy on Pinterest!
Here’s what you need:
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt, optional and to taste
1 cup Reese’s Pieces
1 cup chocolate chips
First, I preheated the oven to 350*. After that, I creamed together the first five ingredients on high until it was fluffy. Around 5 minutes or so.
Then, I added the flour and baking soda and mixed for about a minute. You don’t want to over mix it.
Next, I add the Reese’s Pieces and chocolate chips. I actually mixed this by hand because I didn’t want to smoosh all the candies.
I sprayed a cookie sheet with Pam and then put the dough on the pan. I actually rolled the dough into balls at first, because that’s usually how I make chocolate chip cookies. That batch didn’t turn out too well.
I guess it was the peanut butter, but they didn’t flatten out how I thought they would. So I made sure to flatten out the last batch before putting the dough in the oven. I baked them for about 8 minutes.
They turned out a lot better!
Guys, these cookies were DELISH! So yummy and a great alternative to plain old chocolate chip cookies! (Make sure you have a cup of cold milk, though! They’re really rich!)
