Reeses Peanut Butter Egg Cookies…

Tags: , , ,

Cookies

Happy Thursday friends!  Another week flying right by huh?  I have no doubt these cookies will become a new favorite in your household!

I have to admit……these Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs are the death of me.  I can NOT resist them, I’ve tried and it just doesn’t work.  They are by far my favorite candy in the whole wide world which is why I am grateful that they only come out for Easter!  My hips couldn’t take it if I could get these babies all year round!

So, to make matters worse, I have created an incredible cookie for my favorite candy…..and um…..let’s just say…..they are INCREDIBLE!  Don’t believe me?  Try them for yourself!

Enjoy!  xoxox

So bad but oh so good!!  Picked these up at Target :)

Mmmmm, drooling again :)

In love…

Chop the Reeses eggs on the larger side and you’ll get these fabulous chunks in the middle of your cookies!

Reeses Peanut Butter Egg Cookies

2 sticks softened butter

1 Cup packed brown sugar

1 Cup granulated sugar

3 Tablespoons corn syrup

2 large eggs plus 1 egg white

1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract

3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 Cups chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs, 12 total eggs (find them in the Easter Candy Section, quick!)  You can also use regular Reeses Peanut Butter Cups :)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter, sugars and corn syrup until well combined….light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2.  In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs.  Mix only until just combined.  Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes until just turning golden around edges.  Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Eat with tall glass of milk!!

4 dozen cookies

Have a FAB rest of your week and weekend!

    Holy cow. Amazing! I totally agree about the eggs being the diet kiss of death. I was supposed to have given up desserts for Lent, but gave into one of these bad boys. The cookies look incredible!!!

    I don’t know, Jenny, one of MY favorite cookies in the world are your banana Reese’s Cups cookies, I’d HAVE to try these and compare. ;) They look de-lish.

    WOW!!! I’m with you, anything chocolate peanut butter and I’m hooked! I will definitely be trying these. Have you seen the BIG (and I do mean big) Reese’s peanut butter egg this year? It’s so big that they say it’s 4 servings! I couldn’t resist getting it. :)

      Jenny says:

      Hi Shannon,
      I picked up those little baskets at a stationary/post office store right across the street from our place. I think it’s called Newport Stationary or something like that. They are actually little candle holders!! I thought they were cute!

    Brooke says:

    I am SOOOOOO with you on those Reese’s Eggs! If I had ONLY those and Diet Coke, I would be a VERY HAPPY woman! Of course, my Diet Coke would NOT counterbalance the Eggs ;)! I will be making these FOR SURE!

    Oh boy, those eggs are the death of me too! I ate a whole pack (yes, ALL 6!) at one sitting when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am surprised she came out ok but now she is a reeces addict! I will be trying these cookies this weekend as they will be a hit over here.

    OMG, these look so fantastic. I am loving the look of your blog by the way, so retro and cute.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    What an interesting cookie recipe! I’ve never heard of one with corn syrup and egg whites. I must try this out. I love how the peanut butter eggs look chopped. I know these cookies were beyond awesome.

  29. 29

    Girl, you are so not good for my diet! This is my favorite easter candy and I will certainly be giving these a try!

    Charity says:

    I agree – those resses eggs are the death of me. They do make them in other shapes for some of the other holidays (trees for Christmas, hearts for Valentine’s, etc); I just might have to try this!

    Heidi says:

    So glad I am not the only one that has a weakness for those Reese’s eggs! Cannot wait to try this one!

    I made these last night for a couple events we have today. Let’s just say I’m glad I only kept 3 at home… or I might have eaten them all! So delicious.

    I had to use about 20 eggs, I think because I bought a big pack of them and they are a smaller size.

    So good :) Thank you!

    Breann says:

    I absolutely love your recipes!

    I live in Utah and we have this placed called Cutler’s bakery. Today I indulged and had a peanut butter finger cookie. It was a peanut butter cookie (with peanut butter chunks) then a peanut butter type frosting then thick milk chocolate frosting on the top. It was amazing..This cookie sounds similar to it so I could be in very big trouble. Do you think it would be overkill to add some frosting to these? (I know, totally overkill on the calories) Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

    Kylie says:

    I am new to reading your blog, but I must say that I am blown away by the creative recipes you have come up with!! You are really talented!
    And, I am also from Arizona, a Mesa native! :)
    Anyways, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the best chocolate candies invented… but for some reason the eggs are EVEN better! I can’t wait to try these! Thank you!

    Sarah M. says:

    Saw the recipe the other day so I picked up some eggs thinking I would try it out today. One problem. For some reason I had it in my head that the recipe only called for 8 eggs…and I may have opened one of the packages and had a couple. I just double checked the recipe. Oops! Guess I’ll have to go buy another package! I’ll try not to cry all the way to the store… ;-)

  36. 36

    These look AWESOME!! Reese’s eggs are my downfall too….I just can’t resist those holiday inspired guys. They seem to taste soo much better than regular peanut butter cups too. I’m definitely going to have to try these out!

    Kara says:

    I just whipped these up. I had a little trouble with the flour, my dough was very wet. I’m not sure if I miscounted, or it was the Colorado altitude or what. I added more flour after one pan full and they came out much thicker. Also, I used one bag of mini cups, and one package of the large eggs. I really liked the mix. After I chopped them, I froze them overnight to prevent tearing them in the dough. I’d definitely recommend that to anyone who gets a little rough with the spoon! Thanks Jenny, your cookies are always incredible!

    They are the death of me too. The problem is- so are the pumpkin, christmas tree and heart reeses for the other holidays. So between October and April- I’m in trouble. Oh well. I have six months of the year to lower my cholesterol :) Thanks for the recipe.
