Soft Baked Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Chips Cookies
It’s Friday, I’m in love.
More and more I feel like I’m working for the weekend. I definitely fall into the “work to live” camp, not “live to work”. And I actually like my job. There’s just other things I’d rather be doing 85% of the time. At least I have a long weekend coming up next week for the 4th. I can make it.
These cookies are really good and I don’t typically like soft baked cookies. When I was little and my dad would buy the soft baked Chips Ahoy I’d always skip them and wait for the next time he bought the regular ones. But these? These I ate. Nearly all of them, in fact.
Pay attention to the directions though – you have to chill this dough at least 2 hours before you bake them. I didn’t pay attention so when I made these at 8:00 pm and had to wait until at least 10:00 pm, I was super disappointed. I ended up making them the next day. It did, however, give me something to look forward to the next day.

Servings: 2 dozen
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until no lumps are left.
- Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk.
- Whisk in the vanilla.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix (I like to use a spatula to help scrape down the sides as I go). The dough will be very soft and buttery.
- Fold in the chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces until they're evenly distributed.
- Cover the dough and chill for at least 2 hours. I did mine overnight.
- After chilling, set the dough out to soften to room temperature.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line your baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
- Roll the dough into balls, approximately 3 Tablespoons each. (I used my cookie scoop to help me)
- [Make the dough balls taller rather than wider to end up with thick cookies]
- They're large so you should have 8 per tray instead of the of the usual 12.
- Press a couple more Reese's Pieces into the the top of the dough balls, if you want. They'll come out prettier that way.
- Bake for 11-12 minutes. They'll look underdone but that's ok because you're going to leave them on the baking sheet for another 10 minutes to cool and they're continue baking.
- After 10 minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
