Reeses Pieces Cookie Blondies

   I decided to do a little brownie experiment when baking some treats to take over to my brother's place for tea. Since my Reese's Pieces collection is forever growing I settled for a combination of peanut butter cookies and blondies layered together.

  • Heat the oven to 180 degrees and line an 8x8"deep baking tray.
  • Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the egg and mix well.
  • Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a separate bowl.
  • Turn the mixer on low, gradually add the flour mix until well combined.
  • Finally, fold in the Reese's Pieces.
  • Spread the cookie dough over the baking tray and flatten with a spatula. Chill in the fridge whilst making the blondie mix.
