Ultimate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

August 30, 2017Teresa

Okay, get this: Ultimate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies! And when I say U-L-T-I-M-A-T-E, I mean ULTIMATE! 🙂 These spectacular cookies start with my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough (Mrs. Field’s copycat recipe) and substitute peanut butter chips and Reese’s peanut butter cups instead. Talk about amazing.

Every now and then I have to bake up cookies to restock our freezer. John usually takes out one or two containers every week and gives them away. I was getting a little low a few weeks ago and looked in my pantry and saw a bag of peanut butter chips and some Reese’s peanut butter cups that looked like they needed a new home. 🙂 Well they found their new home in this delicious recipe. I was ecstatic with the way these heavenly cookies turned out.

If you’re looking for a way to use up Halloween candy, or want to spring a great new cookie on friends this fall or for Christmas baking, I can’t recommend Ultimate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies enough. They’re rich in chocolate and peanut butter flavors. In fact, the cookie is so decadent you will be hard pressed to stop at just one. You may have to give most of them away like I did….that is if you want to keep your school boy or school girl figure.  Just saying….

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: There are times when I’m making a double batch of this recipe where I have to add an additional quarter to half cup of flour in order to be able to roll the dough into balls. If the dough gets too sticky. Add a little flour to the batter.

NOTE: My cookies took almost 20 minutes to bake.

    Bought a bag of peanut butter chips by mistake and decided to try this as an experiment. One of the best cookies I have ever made – and we don’t even like Reese’s cups or peanut butter!
