Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter CookiesThese are the best Reese’s Pieces peanut butter cookies with more than a cup of creamy peanut butter.  And adding Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips make these the ultimate peanut butter cookies!

 

I made these Reese’s Pieces peanut butter cookies and they are amazing! They are soft in the middle and have a delicious peanut butter flavor with a mix in of Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.

I made this easy peanut butter cookies recipe a few weeks ago. They turned out so good that my family asked if I would make them again this week.

I make these Reese’s peanut butter cookies smaller by only rolling them into 1.5 inch balls. A kitchen item I love using now and that makes the cookies come out round and all the same size is a 1.5 Tablespoon cookie scoop. Until a few years ago, I would use a spoon to measure the dough and then roll it into a ball. When I finally purchased and started using a cookie scoop, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t purchased one sooner. It’s definitely convenient to have, and I use it every time I make cookies now.
