These Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookies are the perfect chewy peanut butter cookie that you have been looking for! Also, the added Reese’s Pieces amp up the peanut butter flavor and give the cookie a little crunch!
The idea for this recipe came to us while we were hunkered down for Hurricane Dorian. The kids and I were getting a little bit of cabin fever so we decided to make some cookies. This recipe was adapted from one passed down by my Nana. She added a little bit of milk to this cookie recipe which I am sure helps with the chewiness that this cookie has.
If you prefer your cookies to be firmer or a little crunchy go ahead and bake them for an extra minute or 2!
