Cookie Recipe #136 - Reese's Pieces Chocolate Cookies
A soft chocolate cookie loaded with everyone's favorite-Reese's pieces plus my addition of a handful of peanut butter chips (as if there wasn't enough peanut butter) will satisfy your daily chocolate & peanut butter fix.
Ingredients: 1/2 (1 stick)butter, softened, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup cocoa (of course, I used more like 1/2 cup), 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup milk (if you use the extra cocoa like I do, add just a tad more milk, maybe 1 more teaspoon), 1 1/4-1 1/2 cups Reeses Pieces, 1/2 cup peanut butter chips (if desired).
Instructions: Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar; add egg and vanilla and beat well. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture until thoroughly combined. By hand, stir in 3/4-1 cup of the pieces and the peanut butter chips (if using).
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Place 2-3 of remaining candies on top of each cookie. Bake 10-11 minutes or until soft-set (do not overbake). Cool 1 minute before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
