Peanut, peanut butter. In cookies. Cause it's good, peanut butter, in cookies. Good, peanut butter, in cookies. La la la. Yeah, I know that's not how the song goes. I had to improvise for this blog post. I'm in a great mood(if you couldnt already tell) after finally finding the perfect Reese's pieces cookie recipe, and let me tell you, it was NOT EASY.
The recipes I found online were just not making the cut; they kept coming out with the wrong consistency. So I decided I to take one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes and switch it up a bit, and alas, peanut butter utopia.
Soft, but not too soft. Chewy. Moist. Just enough peanut butter. Just enough Reese's pieces. Straight up scrumptious.
Next time I make these, I think I will add cocoa powder...oh yes...a chocolate and peanut butter combination *swooon*
Reese's Pieces Cookies

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup Reese's pieces
DirectionsPlace oven racks in the upper and lower 1/3s of the oven. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix butters and sugars with a mixer until blended and smooth.

Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in Reese's pieces.
