Double Peanut Butter Delight Cookies

For some ungodly reason, my husband is not a giant fan of peanut butter.  He’s more of a Nutella guy.  Which is OK with me, but sometimes I just want some peanut butter cookies!   I hate only baking for myself.  So last week he actually agreed to eat some peanut butter in a baked good…and I had no problem making one!  I decided on a peanut butter cookie laced with Reese’s Pieces and chocolate chips.  These cookies were chocolately, peanut buttery overload 🙂

The ingredient lineup.

Start by creaming together the butter, sugars, and peanut butter until smooth.

Beat in the egg and vanilla.  Gradually add the flour and baking soda until combined.  Now, carefully stir in the chocolate chips and Reese’s pieces.

It would be a good idea to chill your dough here, but I was baking kind of late and was in a hurry to get the cookies into the oven.  Scoop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes.  I went a little shorter on the time, because of my innate ability to overbake cookies.  Your oven and baking time may vary.  Let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then move to rack until fully cool…unless you love warm, gooey cookies 😀

I know I do 🙂
