Servings: 28 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour all-purpose
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Reese's Pieces
  • 1 cup chocolate chips semi-sweet

Instructions

  • Using a mixer, cream together the first 5 ingredients (through vanilla) on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scrapping the sides of the bowl, as needed.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and mix on low speed until just incorporated, about 1 minute; do not over mix.
  • Using a spatula or wooden spoon, add the Reese's Pieces, chocolate chips, and blend until just incorporated.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop (I recommend one above), scoop heaping spoonfuls of dough and place on a large serving platter or plate. Flatten mounds slightly with your palm, cover with plasticwrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 5 days, before baking. Do not bake with warm dough because cookies will spread and bake thinner and flatter.
  • Once the dough is chilled, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Note: if you chilled your dough overnight or longer, you will need to remove the dough from the fridge while the oven preheats. See note above.
  • Place dough on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart from one another. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, rotating cookies halfway through. Do not bake longer than 10 minutes, as they will firm up as they cool.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing and transferring to a rack to finish cooling.
