Reeses Cookies

No they don't belong to Reese nor did he create this recipe. He does however have some pieces of his peanut buttery goodness inside. I am of course referring to Reeses Pieces.

Yes its another peanut butter treat. Mark my words I will find a way to get peanut butter into almost anything and I have noticed from a recent Google search for peanut butter recipes that so have a lot of Americans.

For those of you playing at home, Reeses pieces can be purchased from the little lolly store across from foodworks for everyone else you can find them at USA foods. If you cant find Reeses pieces then you can easily use peanut butter m&m's which you can find at the Nutshack in Woodgrove (if you don't mind paying an arm and a leg) or again at USA foods.

1 cup brown sugar - firmly packed
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
185gms butter - melted
1 egg - lightly beaten
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 to 3/4 cup Reese pieces

1. Pre heat oven to 180°C. Combine the brown sugar, caster sugar, plain flour and self raising flour in a bowl. Add the butter, egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Mix with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. Mix in the Reeses pieces.
2. Place rounded tbl spoons of the dough onto a tray lined with baking paper, roughly 6 cms apart.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins or until they look light brown in colour.
3. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 mins on the tray before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely. Be on the look out for sneaky little boys who can reach the warm cookies.
4. Serve and enjoy with the kidlets.

Enjoy :)

  1. *Amendment: I have just been informed that the Nutshack is no longer in Woodgrove. But I'm pretty sure you can also get the peanut butter m&m's at the little lolly shop.
