I think that Reese’s Pieces have a real October-y kind of look to them.
Speaking of October, it happens to be National Pastor Appreciation Month, so why not bake a batch of these delicious beauties for the one who shepherds and cares for your church?

Now, back to the cookies.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups Reese’s Pieces
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets with cooking spray.
2. In large bowl, beat sugars and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Beat in peanut butter, vanilla, and egg. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Stir in candies. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be soft). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
I think peanut butter and chocolate are like the perfect match ever.
Happy Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Cookie-ing! 🙂
