4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined.
5. Fold in the peanut butter chips and Reese's Pieces candy.
6. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
7. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
8. Scoop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
9. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
10. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
11. Enjoy these delicious Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies! They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to six weeks. Label and date any frozen cookies for easy reference.
Note: For added convenience, you can make the cookie dough ahead of time and freeze it. Simply scoop out the dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid. Then, transfer the frozen dough balls to a freezer-safe zipper bag. When you're ready to bake, simply place the frozen dough balls on a baking sheet and add a couple of extra minutes to the baking time.
