  • ½ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp milk
  • 1-½ cups flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chips semi-sweet
  • ½ cup Reese's Pieces candies


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together until smooth and light yellow in color.
  • Add in the sea salt and baking soda and stir to combine.
  • Stir in egg, vanilla extract, and milk and mix well.
  • Add flour, half at a time, mixing until just combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces.
  • Using a 3 TBS cookie scoop, scoop dough onto lined baking sheets two inches apart.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, rotating halfway though.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze.


*I only get 6 cookies per half-sheet size baking pan.
**Both the cookies and the cookie dough may be frozen. Bring dough up to room temperature prior to baking.
