Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Chicken Legs has been traveling more with his new job. I've been trying to be nice and have treat for him when he gets home. I've been craving a peanut butter oatmeal cookie for a while, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone.

One word - delicious! These cookies are crazy good. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  I usually just eat one cookie, but I ate several of these before I could make myself stop. I loved the peanut butter and hint of oatmeal, but it was the Reese's Pieces that really made this cookie for me. Chicken Legs was in agreement. These cookies are delicious!

  2. I love oatmeal cookies...and I love Reese's Pieces, therefore - I know I'd love these!

  3. If you can find it, get Peanut Butter and Company white chocolate wonderful. It's PB with a hint of white chocolate. It's wonderful in baked goods. It just might change your life! I think these will be my next cookie.

  4. I use natural peanut butter with no sugar. Do I need to use something like Jiff for this recipe?

  5. Miss Pants - I always use something like Jiff or Skippy when I bake cookies. I don't have much experience with no sugar all natural peanut butter in baking.

  6. These sound fantastic!! LOVE a good PB cookie. And the traveling spouse. Ugh. I know your pain!

  7. I just made these with White Chocolate Wonderful. They are awesome! Really peanut buttery! Also, the small-ish, resealable bag of Reece's pieces is almost exactly a cup and a half!
