chocolate chip REESE’s cookies

So yesterday I just didn’t feel like working… you know those days right. I had tons to do, but I just wanted to bake. I kept peeking in my son’s trick-or-treat bag at all the goodies that he didn’t eat (and likely never will). The REESE’s cups kept staring back at me! 

I only had an hour so instead of breaking out my pretty Kitchen Aid mixer and starting from scratch, I grabbed some Chocolate Chip Pillsbury Cookie dough from the fridge and in four simple steps baked at 350 for 9 minutes I had the ooey, gooiest, yummiest Chocolate Chip REESE’S Cookie ever. It honestly was amazing! My son… the one whose Halloween stash I raided… was so giddy over them he didn’t even care I stole his loot. {grin} 

I hope you all have a wonderful and fun filled weekend! I personally am planning to craft. I have a list of fun things to try and with Christmas just around the bend I need to get busy!

    Great Idea! I just made the cookies in a mini muffin pan…instead of reese cups I stuck a peice of snickers in the middle….can’t wait to try them :)

    Hi,
    I tried making these, baked them for 12 minutes and they came out like mush. What type of muffin pan/cupcake pan did you use? I used a regular cupcake pan for mine… How thin were your cookie layers? Thanks for your help,my son in law was really disappointed when i told them they didn’t turn out so i’d really like to try it again. :)

      Julie – I used a regular cupcake pan. And for the dough, I used a rounded ball (one normal cookie size), lightly pressed into the bottom, topped with the full size REESE’S and topped again with one normal cookie size of dough. I hope they work out for you on the second try!

    I made these this morning for my nephew’s birthday party…they look really tasty! It’s hard to wait to eat them until the party. Quick question – how many did the cookie dough end up making? I only got about 7 from one cookie dough roll, so I was afraid I made them too large (but really, can cookies ever be too big?? :-)). Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      Jessica – so glad you made the cookies! As for how much, I used a 1/3 roll for my entire batch. :) But as you said, how could a cookie ever be too large. I hope they were yummy!
