Reese’s Soft Chocolate Cookies

This is a recipe I got off the back of a bag of Reese’s peanut butter chips. I had all intentions of making PB fudge with the chips, but I needed a quick cookie idea the other day and these did not fail me! Enjoy!

1 c (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 c sugar
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 2/3 c (1 10 oz. bag) peanut butter chips*

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs.
3. Sift in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Combine slowly.
4. Mix in peanut butter chips.
5. Drop teaspoon-fulls onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes. Cookies will be soft in the center.

*Can be substituted with chocolate or white chocolate chips. I also think nuts would go well in these cookies, particularly walnuts.

    Yesterday, I made these cookies again. Or at least I thought I was making the same cookies again. I followed the directions on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips bag for “Chewy Chocolate Cookies” and it appears to differ slightly from the recipe above. Namely, it calls for 1 1/4 c butter and 2 t vanilla extract. Everything else is the same, but the baking time is reduced to 8-9 minutes (9 min worked perfectly for me). I’d say they lived up to their name as “chewy” and really were a hit at my bake sale for the ALA today.
