Peanut Butter Cookies with Reese's Pieces Recipe

I don't know about you, but for me May is a busy month.   It seems that a lot of things are starting or ending right now. We finished up dance, so of course we had dance recitals. We started T-ball and coach pitch for the little girls, so that means practices and games.

We've had Karate belt graduation and a track meet for my son. School is ending so there are end-of-school projects and programs to attend. On top of the extra things are the regular everyday things that still need to be done like laundry, dishes, and dinner.

Plus the yard work now that it's warm. Last week I barely sat down the whole week and the next two don't look much different.

Much to my daughter's dismay {since she's allergic} I've made these twice in the last month. I always make sure to have a treat for her too, like these chocolate chip cookies.
