Peanut Butter Cookies with Reese’s Pieces and Chocolate Chips

Tracy Byrne

Peanut butter cookies with Reese's Pieces &  Chocolate Chips | Pale YellowLately I've had a little obsession with Reese's Pieces.  Despite my complete and utter love for chocolate, I'm clearly satisfied with just peanut butter.  I've been sneaking bites of little pieces whenever I can.  This obsession is one of the many reasons why I'm giving up sweets for the month of January.  I just need a fresh start to 2014 and I thought a little less sugar would help me do so.  I was doing really well until my brownie sundae Saturday.  Whoops.

Peanut butter cookies with Reese's Pieces &  Chocolate Chips | Pale YellowThis is one of the recipes I've been saving in preparation for the big move since all my baking equipment is in the tower of boxes.  I made these cookies in October!  I facilitated a teacher workshop this fall and knew the best way to make a great first impression is to bake delicious cookies.  Judging by the speed in which the cookies were consumed, they were hit.
