Oatmeal Reese’s Pieces Cookies

Oatmeal Reese’s Pieces Cookie
     You may have already seen them in the store, but Reese’s Pieces now come in baking size. They are about the circumference of a mini M&M, and come in 10 oz. bags. Originally I bought them to make fudge with, but the back of the bag had an oatmeal cookie recipe I thought I’d try.
     These cookies have a definite shortening flavor to them, so I suggest substituting butter if you are not a fan. They come out of the oven quite soft but firm up after a few hours. They tasted fresh enough for almost a week, so they are a nice cookie to have on hand in case of company.
