Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2014

Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies are awesome. If you love chocolate and peanut butter together this cookie is the best of both worlds. It has rich chocolate flavor, then peanut butter chips are added providing a burst of flavor that’s amazing. They make exceptionally good Christmas cookies, too. Almost everyone we’ve ever given these cookies to for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza over the years has loved these cookies. The outsides are crispy but the insides are soft and chewy.

This year, I made up a batch of these jewels for some long-time friends of ours who used to be directors of our Sunday school class for years. They recently took positions in San Antonio so when John was in that area for a brief visit a week ago, he surprised them with a batch of Christmas cookies before taking them out to dinner. They were overjoyed with these goodies.

We’ve made Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies for over thirty years now. We made them almost every year for Christmas in the earlier days. The only thing I would suggest when making them is not to cook them in a dark, black pan. Those were the kind of cookie sheets available back in the 70s and 80s and the cookies would scorch on the bottoms even if they’d only been baking 8 minutes! The reflection never worked well. I learned to invest in better baking pans as a result. Now that I’ve been using the professional-type cookie sheets for the past 10 years or so, we’ve not had any problem.

If you’re looking for a lovely chocolate cookie and you need a dose of peanut butter as well, then consider making up a batch of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies. The combination of flavors is incredible and everyone always loves them.

Cream with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add a bag of peanut butter chips.
