Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter slightly softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Topping:

  • Reeses Peanut Butter Pumpkins
  • Candy Eyes
  • White Chocolate Chips Cut in Half for Mouth

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add egg and stir until combined.
  2. On low speed, add in vanilla and salt. Add baking soda and stir for 10 seconds. Slowly add in flour and mix for 30 seconds, or until dough is combined.
  3. Scoop and roll into 2-tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Lightly flatten the tops of each cookie so they are more like thick discs. This will help them bake more evenly.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Immediately after removing from the oven, press a Reeses pumpkin into the center of each one. Once the chocolate starts to melt (3-5 minutes), press two candy eyeballs and a half of a white chocolate chip to create the mouth. Allow for the cookies to continue to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes until removing cookies from the baking sheet. To harden chocolate, place in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes.
