In the Kitchen: Reese Mini Cookies

One of my very favorite treats are Reese Peanut Butter Cups. And then I found Reese Minis. And I love them even more!!

And the last bag I was enjoying made me think how great they'd be in cookies. So I got to work and came up with these little gems.

Reese Mini Cookies
1/2 cup softened margarine
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 bag of Reese Minis

1. Dump out all your Reese Minis and chop them in half. Spread them out onto a plate or pan and pop them into the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
mmmmm tasty!

2. Meanwhile, Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add in salt, soda and flour and mix well.

3. Add in your frozen chopped Reese Minis and mix but not too much as it'll chop them all up and you don't want to do that :)
The dough

4. With an ice cream scoop, scoop out the cookies onto a pan prepared with parchment paper. The slip the pans into the freezer for about 10 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven for 12 minutes. Enjoy!!

(When you see this little logo in the future, that means it's a recipe I came up with myself.)

I totally think you should instal a "pin it" button at the bottom of your posts so that I can pin all your yummy looking food onto pinterest easier! I don't know how to go about doing it but I've seen the feature in other blogs and I think your blog deserves it too!

This is just ridiculous.
I would probably stop the recipe after number one "cut mini's in half..." proceed to eat all of them. They look amazing.
DO NOT bring any over to my house. I repeat - DO NOT bring any over.
I'm also thinking this was a random pregnancy craving thing for you?!
