Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

Wow that name sure is a handful to say! My dad’s favorite cookies have always been peanut butter cookies. My mom always makes the same recipe. I had a bag of reeses pieces laying around and threw them in the cookie dough. They were delicious. My boys especially liked them! They would be even better with the mini reese pieces. So if your a peanut butter fan give these cookies a try!

Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup reese’s pieces 

Cream together first 6 ingredients; add in dry ingredients, then reese’s pieces. Mix well. Roll into balls. Pat down with bottom of a cup or something flat. Then crisscross with fork. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. (You do not want to overcook these cookies. Take them out when the shine is just off the dough) Also use light colored cookie sheets.
