I made these for a friend’s birthday at work because the colors are perfect for fall.  Reese’s Pieces Cookies are a “souped up” version of Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies with loads of delicious extras.  (Did you like the food pun?  I thought it was hilarious).  Don’t skip the shortening, it’s part of what gives these beauties their crumbly texture.

Reese’s Pieces Cookies



Prepare 1 batch Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Before you bake, dump in and mix additional ingredients.

Bake as specified but skip step the crosshatch.  These are so full of extras it won’t work!

Sprinkle with sugar when they’re still hot to keep the classic Peanut Butter Cookie appeal.
