INGREDIENTS

REESES CHOCOLATE COOKIES
3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
3.4 oz package dry instant chocolate pudding mix
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup mini Reeses, chopped
2–3 tsp milk

PEANUT BUTTER CREAM CHEESE ICING
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1–2 tbsp water or milk, if needed

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, dry pudding mix and cocoa powder.
  5. Stir in chopped Reeses. Add milk, if needed, to help dough come together. Dough will be thick.
  6. Make balls of about 1 tbsp and then flatten a bit into thick discs and place on cookie sheet. They will spread a little while they bake.
  7. Bake for about 7-8 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. While cookies cool, make icing. Beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  10. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
  11. Mix in the peanut butter.
  12. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add water or milk until it’s a smooth consistency.
  13. Once cookies are cool, make cookie sandwiches.
