How to make Reese's Pieces cookies
To start with, you'll want to Preheat your oven to 350℉. Next, pour flour, salt, cocoa and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Mix these together well and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add brown sugar, sugar, butter, milk, vanilla, peanut butter and egg. Mix these ingredients together well.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix together.
Now it's time to add in the Reese’s Pieces. I dare you not to sneak a few during the step. It's okay if you do, I won't tell! You'll want to make sure to save some Reese's Pieces for later for cookie decorating.
On a non-stick or parchment paper lined pan, place tablespoon sized balls of dough evenly spaced. Slightly flatten each dough ball with a spoon. Bake for 12-15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove the cookies from the oven and transfer them to a cooling rack.
Once the cookies have cooled, it is time to add some yummy frosting on the bottom side of a cookie.
Place a cookie on top of the frosting to make a cookie sandwich. Stick Reese’s Pieces and miniatures into the frosting to decorate your cookie sandwich.
I think these Reese's Cookie Sandwiches would make a perfect dessert or treat because of the colors, but the flavors are fabulous for any season!
