This cookie really is perfect! I followed the recipe exactly, although I doubled it, because I tend to get fewer cookies out of a recipe than the yield says. This recipe is right on, I got 8 dozen out of a double recipe, and I like bigger cookies! The are very soft cookies, and the few that didn't get eating quickly lasted well. The dough is very thick, but produces excellent cookies that have a similar taste to a brownie (only better!!) Next time I plan to replace the reese's pieces with pieces of chopped up Ande's mints!! I can't wait!!
TIP: make sure to keep track of the time while these are baking since the dark dough doesn't let you easily figure out if they're done. I found that this recipe was easy to follow, and the cookies look great, but I am not a fan of the dough - despite all the sugar, I didn't find it to be very sweet. However, all the cookies will certainly be eaten, and it's a nice colour for fall/Halloween. I do not plan to make these again, as I wasn't too impressed with the taste, and the chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces cost a fair bit.
Shortening in cookies always scares me, but I really liked it in this combination. I used 1 c of white sugar and a T more of brown to help with the sweetness others said it missed. I also increased the salt to 3/4 tsp. I skipped the refigeration step, slightly pressing them down, and just put them straight in the oven for closer to 11-12 min. These were great! I found the mini-Reese's pieces at the store and this was the perfect recipe to use them in! Just be careful not to cook them too long, the pieces will start to crack!
wonderful and chocolate. easy to make also. i followed the recipe with the exception of the cocoa powder i had said it was dark cocoa powder. it was really good.
These were pretty simple and easy to make and were a big hit in my house. I actually sent these off to my husband in Iraq and can't wait to hear what he thinks of them!

My boyfriend's favorite candy is Reeses Pieces, so this was at the top of my list to make for him. Great cookies, very brownie-like. Will make again.
