PBC Reese's Pieces Cookies!

IT'S PI DAY! - 3.14159265359! Whoo but unfortunately, this will not be a pie recipe, cookies are round, so that should count for something :)

Hurray for rays of sunshine, finally! Actually getting quite warm, had to dig out the shorts yesterday...Very tempting to go everywhere, explore, eat loads of yummy foods, shop 'til I drop kind of mode ...but... I've "recently" (recently being relative) joined the unemployed and need to pull back on those urges for the time being. Not that I can't but being a responsible adult and all... I should probably be even more conservative in these dire times. haha but small secret...I'm slightly obsessed with Korean skincare products right now so there might have been some recent spending on this new found discovery. All I'm going to say is - if you want more natural skincare products without paying the premium and less harsh chemicals, that's where it is. (p.s. here's 20% off  in case you want to give it a try :))

Anyways, with loads of free time and not so many places to go, what better way to spend it then in the kitchen making some yummy treats for yourself. This idea was basically combining all the things the Caveman is crazy about into a cookie. The results are pretty darn delicious! Can't go wrong if you're in the mood for something peanut buttery, chocolatey and filled with Reese's Piece!
