Reeses Peanut Butter Egg Cookies & VOTE FOR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP

My SWEET 17 year old daughters, Ashlyn & Kayley made this plate of cookies for me last year when I was put into the hospital for an emergency appendicitis (even though this was the last thing I wanted to eat, they new I had the recipe sitting on the counter and they made the cookies anyway and brought them to the hospital for the nurses to eat). I thought this recipe was so fitting to share today because I want to ASK all of you my faithful bloggers, to kindly push two SMALL buttons below and VOTE for both of my twin daughters (and every day you happen upon this post, please VOTE, contest ends March 21, 2011 and you can VOTE one time per day!!!).

They both excel very well in school, but every "A" they receive is very hard earned, school does not come easy for them and receiving an "A" in every class is extremely important to them and it shows in their hard work and dedication. (Kayley received her first 4.0 and Ashlyn a 3.9 last semester) This small contest is a chance to win a $2,000 College Scholarship from Brickfish. They will both be attending a 4-year college next year and each and every scholarship they have a chance to earn is equally important to them. No matter how big or how small, they are thankful for every opportunity that comes their way! So, PLEASE VOTE for Ashlyn and Kayley below! (Thanks a million, from their proud mama)!!!


Reeses Peanut Butter Egg Cookies

2 sticks softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp corn syrup
2 large eggs plus 1 egg white
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs, 12 total eggs (find them in the Easter Candy Section, quick! You can also use regular Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. And we even used my favorite the WHITE Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter, sugars and corn syrup until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs.  Mix only until just combined.  Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes until just turning golden brown. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
