Peanut Butter goodness!

We like to make cookies at our house all the time and sometimes we put in new ingredients to change them up and make them super delicious.

This time we put in Reeses Pieces (like my Reese’s Pieces Puppy Chow). Good idea, huh?

They’re kind of like our M&M Cookies but have that delicious Peanut Butter taste that is so yummy. If you like cookies and you like Reese’s Pieces then I really think you should try these Reese’s Pieces Cookies!

We love that these are beyond simple!

PREP. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

DOUGH. Add the butter, oil and sugars to your mixer. Mix them. Add the eggs and beat until it looks fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients but not the 1 cup whole Reeses Pieces.

BAKE. Spoon dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Add 3-4 Reeses Pieces on top and press in a bit. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes. ENJOY!

Tips + Variations

BUTTER: When you use softened butter and cream it, it creates air pockets that will transfer to actually baking the cookies. If you melt the butter it doesn’t give as much as a leavening effect, which is fine for other baked goods, but not cookies.

CRUSHED CANDIES: When you end up putting the candy in the mixer they get crushed up anyway, but there is another reason for this method. By crushing the candies you distribute more of the flavor, color, and crunch.

You can still put whole ones on top to get that bite into the candy, but the small pieces get the flavor all the way through the cookie. This is especially helpful when you’re working with a chocolate chip batter instead of a peanut butter one.

Change it up:

  • Use different cookie bases: sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, or chocolate.
  • Add both Reeses pieces and peanut butter cups. Or even do ½ chocolate chips and ½ peanut butter chips.
  • For more chocolate and less peanut butter, swap out the peanut butter chips for semi sweet or milk chocolate chips.

How to Store

Make the dough ahead of time and STORE it in the fridge or freezer.

  • Fridge: Roll the dough in a log and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer: you can freeze the dough in log form (wrap with plastic then skin with aluminum foil) or you can form dough balls. If you’re forming dough bake you’ll want to flash freeze them on a baking sheet belt transferring them to a freezer Ziploc. Freeze dough for up to 3 months. Allow dough to thaw a bit before baking.

STORE cooled Reese’s Pieces cookies in an airtight container for 4-5 days. Stick a piece of white bread in the container to help keep the cookies soft and chewy. You can also FREEZE the baked cookies for up to 3 months.

    This is my family’s FAVORITE cookie recipe. We make them with Reese’s, without reese’s as a regular chocolate chip, and even without add-ins just as a plain cookie. They are AMAZING. The texture and flavor is simply the best 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This was an excellent recipe! Very simple ingredients, and the result was exactly what I was looking for—a soft chewy cookie with Reece’s pieces! I think this might be my new cookie recipe that I just adapt the add-ins to change it up!
