Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies


Experimenting with new cookie recipes is probably my favorite past time. I mean, seriously. What could be better than butter, sugar, and various forms of chocolate?! This recipe stems from my dream of a world where everything is Reese's peanut butter and chocolate. Perfect in every way! (assuming you like peanut butter, that is. Please don't talk to me if you don't. JK. but really.)


Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 3 dozen cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla 
2-1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (or Eggs!), chopped
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar. Mix in vanilla and eggs until combined. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and Reese's. 

Drop by tablespoonful onto a large cookie sheet (preferably lined with a silicone baking mat.) Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges and tops of cookies are just golden. Let rest on the cookie sheet 2 or 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. 



  1. YUUUMMM!!! These I am going to have to right now :D

  2. First of all - peanut butter and peanut butter cups make my life complete.
    Second of all - you need to stop posting such delicious cookie recipes - my list of cookies I need to try baking is rapidly lengthening.
