Reese's Chocolate Cookies

Cookies are probably hands down at the top of my list of sweets that I LOVE to eat. But they can't be crispy or cakey, they have to have decadent flavor, and amazing texture for me to indulge in the calories. These cookies have the classic flavor of peanut butter and chocolate, and the texture is soft, and fudgey, and chewy, without being cakey. Make sure when you bake these you do not over cook them. They are best if you let them sit for a little bit and set up. It is hard to tell if you have over baked a chocolate cookie, because you can't see any browning. Oven temps may vary, so for the first batch, set the timer at 8 minutes, and adjust from there, but anything over 10 minutes, regardless of the oven, is over baked in my book. I want to make these right now, but then I will just cancel out my long run I did make some for me!

Reese's Chocolate Cookies

2 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 bag of peanut butter chips (sometimes I add a little less)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar and butter until fluffy. Mix in eggs and vanilla until incorporated. Add flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda, mix well. Add peanut butter chips, mix. Cook on an ungreased baking sheet for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will be soft and gooey, let them sit to set up.
