Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with Reese's Pieces

my husband would probably divorce me & marry Reese's Pieces if that were at all possible. his love for Reese's gives E.T.'s a run for it's money.

me, on the other hand only find them to be so-so. like, i'll eat them, but i'm not going to rave about them.

but i do rave over oatmeal cookies. without raisins (gag). and since i had plenty of oatmeal & a bag of Mini Reese's Pieces in the cupboard- i decided to make us both happy.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with Reese's Pieces (adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything)
You Need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter, melted (1½ sticks)
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups mini Reese's Pieces (or whatever you want)

Directions: Preheat the oven to 325° Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Melt butter and let cool slightly.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the cinnamon, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk for 2-3 minutes until light and creamy. Mix in the flour mixture until just blended. Add the Reese's Pieces. Mix until just blended.

Place tblsp sized balls of dough (i used a cookie scoop) onto parchment lined cookie sheet, flatten slightly, and bake for 14-16 minutes. Do not overbake. The edges should look brown and the centers still slightly soft. Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Feel free to eat them all & justify it by reminding yourself that they're chock full of oatmeal.
Pin It!
