The Perfect Cookies With Reece's Pieces


My husband reminded me the other day that we have a lot of Reece's Pieces. They are actually kind of a staple around our house. My husband has a gum ball machine that is filled with them. He suggested that I should make something with the Reece's pieces. He then recommended cookies. I thought to myself I already have the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, why not just replace the chocolate chips with Reece's Pieces. That is exactly what I did and they are AMAZING!  The Reece's Pieces give such a nice nutty flavor to the already amazing cookies. If you have some Reece's Pieces lying around (or if you find them lying around at the store) you should definitely try these out!

The Perfect Cookie + Reece's Pieces 

Instructions: Follow the recipe for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie except when you come to the part where you add chocolate chips add 1 cup Reece's Pieces instead. Shape into a slightly larger than normal ball of cookie dough. Bake as directed and enjoy! (I of course left out the nuts on this one as well, sorry not a nut person).

  7. Yup, you can use baking chips/drops and many candies into basically the same cookie.
