Peanut Butter Cookies with Reeses Pieces & Chocolate Chips

Not too long ago, I found a blog that I could spend hours browsing recipes and looking at pictures on!  It’s called “Buns in the Oven & Not the Baby Kind”. I have made four different cookies from the site and each turned out so well!  Today my husband requested these peanut butter cookies with Reeses pieces and chocolate chips…to which I am happy to make:)
