Reese's Pieces Cookie Cake


 How is OCTOBER almost over?!  I am having a hard time keeping up with cooking, cleaning, showering, blogging and life.  I am lucky if I cook a decent dinner, so as you can guess baking is almost out of the question.  I LOVE baking, because desserts are awesome, and it reminds me of my old self.  Cookie cake is one of my absolute favorite desserts.  I found this recipe from {Real House Moms} blog and made a few minor adjustments.  This is the first time I made a cookie cake using a spring form pan.  What a brilliant idea!  I wanted to make my cookie cake a little Halloweenish so I used Reese's Pieces in addition to chocolate chips, because they are AWESOME and the perfect fall color.

Reese's Pieces Cookie Cake

Cookie Cake Ingredients:

10 TBSP Butter {room temperature}
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1 Egg + 1 Egg Yolk
1 TSP Vanilla
1 2/3 Cup Flour
3/4 TSP Baking Soda
3/4 TSP Salt
3/4 Cup Reeses Pieces
1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips

Frosting Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Butter {room temperature}
1/4 Cup Shortening
1/2 TSP Vanilla
2 Cups Powder Sugar
2 TBSP Milk

Directions:

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease an 8" spring form pan.

2. In a mixer, blend together the butter and sugar.  Add in the eggs and vanilla until it's all combined.

3.  Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Using a firm spatula or wooden spoon, mix in the Reese Pieces and chocolate chips.

4.  Spread the batter into your spring form pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.  I like my cookies very soft so I removed the cake at 20 minutes.

5.  For the frosting: Mix butter and shortening together until combined.  Add vanilla and mix.


So as you can see the BOO turned into a pumpkin and no, it didn't involve a glass slipper, and it was definitely not midnight because I can't keep my eyes open passed 9.......  I am a rookie when it comes to decorating and thought I could write BOO with a star tip.  NOPE.  It looked like a preschooler wrote it...  Lesson Learned! Now this wasn't the first time I made this cookie cake because it is so freaking good!


Happy Baking y'all!!!
