I’ve been making these cookies for over a year now. Each time I make them, and as I become more comfortable with the ingredients/measurements, they get better. They evolve. I have yet to receive any criticism regarding these treats. In fact, this is the first recipe that I ever shared with my girlfriend. Before we started dating, I brought a batch of these to a house warming party she and her room mate hosted. I like to think that they played a role in the earliest stages of our relationship.

These probably aren’t the healthiest cookies, but that isn’t my intention. Who cares! You only live once, so do it right and enjoy life.

*Note: At the moment, I do not have any high quality photos of these cookies. They keep getting eaten before I can think of grabbing my camera. A part of me wanted to publish this post once I have the appropriate media, but it’s too good to not share immediately! This being said, photos will be added to this post int he near future!

What you need!

  • 1 cup (or two sticks) of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
and…
  • 1/2 pack of Hershey’s Chipits (white chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 pack of Hershey’s Chipits (milk chocolate chips)
or…
  • 1/3 pack of Hershey’s Chipits (milk chocolate chips)
  • Reese’s Pieces (however many you want!)

Make and bake!

  1. Heat oven to 375° F
  2. Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs in  a large bowl until light and fluffy
  3. Add dry ingredients (baking soda and flour)
  4. Mix well! Use those muscles!
  5. Stir in chocolate/whatever confectionary items you may fancy
  6. Place tablespoon fuls of dough onto a baking sheet (leave about 1.5-2 inches between)
  7. Bake for 9 – 11 minutes (I prefer my cookies soft!)
  8. Enjoy!

This recipe was originally adapted from Kraft Foods. I’ve also made a habit of baking Oreo cookies into this dough (with only milk chocolate and a single teaspoon of vanilla).

In the near future, I plan on adapting this recipe for use with candied bacon and butterscotch. Don’t you wish you lived with me?
