REESE'S PIECES PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
~ My Baking Addiction
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 c. lightly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
2 t. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
10 oz. mini Reese's Pieces (about 1 1/3 c.)
Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Stir in oats, then fold in mini Reese's Pieces. Cover and chill for at least three hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough at a time on to prepared sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Leave cookies on baking sheet for five minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 3 dozen cookies.
Notes: I don't use an actual cookie scoop and my estimates of 1 1/2 tablespoons yields five dozen cookies. I lightly grease my baking sheets instead of using parchment paper.
