Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Cookies









Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Cookies

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
20 Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, chilled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy, about 1-2 minutes; beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Take a heaping tablespoon of dough into palm of hand and flatten to about 1/8-inch thick; place peanut butter egg into the center, wrap dough around egg and smooth out the surface. Place on cookie sheets and repeat process. Space the cookies about 1 1/2-inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Makes 20 big cookies.

  6. UMM HELLO!!! Reese's Eggs are like the best in the world...so much better than an actual reese's!! All that peanut buttery goodness! I am so going to have to make these!! yumm!

  7. YES! The PB eggs are the best candy. Hands down. There's something about the eggs in particular, too, that even makes them better than a regular Reese's. I love them. So, naturally, I can't wait to try these cookies. I'm going to have to hide the candy around my house...not for the fun of finding it, like when we were little, but more so that I don't scarf and entire bag of Reese's at once.

  10. They are the best! I ate a 6 pack in one day.
    Have you seen the commercial where the bunny meets the peanut butter and then... out pops these eggs? It's hilarious.

  15. We lived in MA when the Easter Bunny visited us and it was usually too cold to hide eggs outside, so we scourged the living room for candy, too! When we moved West we were surprised to find that the Easter Bunny hid eggs OUTSIDE! Imagine! LOL It's so great the way you come up with all these recipes... your mind must be 'cooking' 24 hours a day!

  18. oh my gosh -i love how the inside shot of the dense peanut butter!

  19. Must be an Ozarks thing - When we were kids we always had our egg hunts in the living room as well!

    I can only guess that it kept the ants off the goodies and the unfound bits out of the lawnmower.

  31. What a great idea! Love the Reeses eggs, but I never buy them because I know I would eat them! But if they are an ingredient in a recipe I must indulge..ha!

  34. I watched the whole video. You are great on camera. Well that is practice for your next big scene. A star is born. Go girl!

    My brother and sister-in-law just gave me a birthday gift of a dinner party (at a date TBD) with Top Chef Stephanie Izard cooking for us at home. Cool, huh?

  36. I am TOTALLY with you. The Reese's eggs are the BEST! I made some cookies similar to this last month except just regular Reese's and a PB cookie.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We absolutely HAVE TO try this:

  38. I've never had reese's peanut butter eggs. Your biscuits look great though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. although i can't agree with you about the eggs being the best easter candy, i will say that these are some terrific cookies. impressive, as usual. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yum!! This sounds so good, thanks! The easter bunny only hid eggs and candy in our living room too, guess it was too chilly in the yard for him... haha. The best part is that I never ever considered it weird until right now!

    ReplyDelete
  41. The mere mention of Reeses makes me perk up...you should give THESE away!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i couldn't agree more; peanut butter eggs ARE the best easter treat!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow... I googled the Reese's PB egg because I'm kinda mad at the Easter Bunny for not leaving MORE Reese's PB Eggs - and I was trying to buy more before they disappear into the hidden earth where things like candy canes and Shamrock Shakes go to live for 11 months each year.
    Now, I found this incredible looking cookie and I'm DOUBLY obsessed with finding more eggs out there!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh ya! I love those eggs. Those look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  45. How did I miss this post? Really? How? Can I still get PB eggs now that Easter is over? I'll bet if I could I could get quite a nice discount.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Cadbury eggs are overrated.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Are you kidding me? OMG I think I'm in love with these even without making them (which I have to do right away!)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Bummer, I missed the giveaway. That's okay, there seems to be plenty of cookies in my life! This looks great. I'm probably a little late on getting some of those Reese's Easter Eggs, but I'll bet mini cups would suffice. And I have those! Great job. Holy Cookies, Batman! Love it!

  48. Can I cut up Reese's PB Cups instead since Easter is over? Jennifer

    I won't eat any of course I'll just give them all away......NOT!
