This past weekend I was in the mood to do baking. I had seen a picture online somewhere of pull apart cookies. I googled and searched all over for a recipe and could not find one. I thought I had saved the recipe to my bookmarks, but I did not.
I went to the store and was trying to think of what type of cookie to make. I saw the Reece’s bag and thought this was a good one to try. I did use my first batch in a glass baking dish for the pull apart cookies.
They looked as though they turned out good, but when I tried to pull them apart, the middle was a bit undercooked or gooey!! So I made the rest of the dough into cookies!!!
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey Cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/4 cup (2 – 1/2 sticks)butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 and 2/3 cups (10 0z pkg) Reece’s Peanut Butter Chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes (do not overbake, cookies will be soft). They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling (which I didn’t realize until reading through the package directions the 2nd time). Cool completely.
This was a great chocolate cookie. I wondered what it would taste like without the cocoa in it. I’ll try next time and see what the outcome is. I know I’ve searched for white cocoa (not even sure if it exists – the baker that I am) but I bet it’s just as good!
I felt like I was dipping my chocolate in a jar of peanut butter. These were pretty good.
Great treat. They were nice and chewy too! I hope I run across the pull apart cookie recipe again. Or if someone knows of a recipe, let me know.
Have a great week.
