mini reeses cookies!

As most of you know, my recent sugar addiction has been over taking my life. In a recent sugar bender, I took a trip to the mini mart and bought some mini reeses and mini rolos. The rolos didn’t make it past the first night, but I was really savoring the reeses. Whenever I would walk to the kitchen, I’d sneak myself one mini reeses before I grabbed whatever else I needed. It was bad. A few days later when Benny and I decided to have our friends over for dinner, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to get rid of my remaining reeses and I made reeses cookies! I modified a recipe for reeses thumbprint cups because I didn’t have enough flour at the house, and what I was left with was a not too sweet, chewy cookie. We all really loved them!

What you need:

  • 24 mini reeses
  • 1 1/8 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together butter and sugars. Add egg and beat well. Add vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt and add to your wet mixture. Mix until combined.

Scoop dough in rounded teaspoons onto baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and stick one peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie and return to oven for another 2-3 minutes until the cookies edges are golden brown.

ENJOY!
