Now if you want to make a straight up amazing sugar cookie, don't add the Reese's Pieces to this and when you scoop them out on the cookie sheet, flatten them a little and then brush the tops of each cookie with milk and then sprinkle with sugar. You will have an amazing cookie when they come out of the oven. And depending on what size cookie scoop you use will determine how many cookies you get - the bigger the cookie scoop, the smaller the yield is. I like to use my 1 1/2" cookie scoop - it's the standard size cookie scoop and I use it for everything.
I scoop out the cookies and away they go into the oven. About 12 minutes later I had cookies out of the oven and smelling so good.
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, room temp
2 large eggs
1 tbsp milk
1 bag Reese's Pieces
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
- Put sugars in bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add butter; mix until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute. Mix in eggs one at a time, and then the milk. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Add Reese's Pieces and mix until well distributed.
- Scoop out dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake cookies until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.
