THE BEST Hershey’s Reese’s Pieces Cookie Recipe!


Kicking off birthday month, I thought it would be appropriate to share a super delicious sweet treat… because what is birthday month other than a time to completely over-indulge?!

My personal preference when it comes to sweets is more savory than straight sugar, which is why these cookies are one of my favorites. This is a peanut butter sugar cookie base, but the peanut butter is not overwhelming what-so-ever. Just a subtle hint, with a little bit more flavor coming from the Reese’s Pieces.

Reese’s Pieces are one of my favorite candies mixed into a treat, whether it be a cookie or ice cream, so I set out to find my favorite cookie recipe including them. To my surprise, I found a “Hershey’s Kitchen” recipe blog, with tons of recipes involving their candies, and it actually is quite good! So, I am sure I will be going back to the Hershey’s Kitchen website for more recipes since I was so pleased with this one.

Truly, I give these cookies 5 full stars, and wouldn’t change a thing about them! I think my first time making them I was out of baking soda and used 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder instead, and they still turned out wonderful!


Here is the original recipe from Hershey’s Kitchens!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine , softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup REESE’S PIECES Candies


1. Heat oven to 350°F.

2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, egg and vanilla in large bowl until fluffy. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in candies. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto un-greased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned; remove from oven. Cool slightly; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 30 cookies.

This cookie dough is so yum, I could have ate the whole bowl!
