Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

These cookies have been one of my favorites for a long time. I got the recipe off the back of Reese's Peanut butter chips. But I also like to use Reese's Mini Pieces (you find them on the baking aisle by the chocolate chips). These are yummy, and perfect colors for Halloween.

This recipe is in the Payne Sisters' Cookbook, by the way.

Reese’s Chewy Chocolate Cookies
Amy Lunt

2 C. flour (I always add more)
2 C. sugar
¾ C. Cocoa
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. salt
1 2/3 C. Peanut Butter chips
1 ¼ C. (2 ½ sticks) butter or margarine, softened

Heat oven to 350° Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture beating well. You will now need to add flour until it looks like a good consistency for cookies (or they will turn out flat). Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Do not overbake, cookies will be soft. (They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling if you don’t add extra flour). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 ½ dozen cookies.
Pan recipe: spread batter in greased 15 ½ X10 ½ X1 inch jelly roll pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 4 dozen bars.
