Tasty Tuesdays...Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

.
These cookies are a family favorite.  My sister is the one who originally found the recipe - on the back of the Reese's chip package!  I don't know exactly when she found the recipe but I remember making them in college - so it's been a while!
.
.
Ingredients:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1-2/3 cups (10 oz package) Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
.
.
{ cookies in progress... }
.
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
.
2.  Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. { The recipe says teaspoons, but mine are usually the size of tablespoons }
.
.
.
3.  Bake 8 to 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.) Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4-1/2 dozen cookies.
.
.I've never tried the pan recipe, but it sure sounds good:
PAN RECIPE: Spread batter in greased 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350°F 20 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into bars. About 4 dozen bars.
.
.
Now it's your turn.  What did you cook this week?

  3. I JUST found these a couple of weeks ago. I thought I would give them a try even though I think the recipe on the back of the pkg NEVER turns out well. We all LOVE them. I was saving the pkg for the recipe and hubby threw it away. The ONE thing in the WHOLE kitchen he picked up and threw away. ARG!!! But now i have the recipe again! woohoo!

  16. Your cookies look great!
    I am sharing my recipe for Crunchy Pecan Cookies. These cookies are naturally gluten free because the flour in them is just a little bit of potato starch.
    Thanks for hosting!
