Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Place peanut butter chips in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 to 2 minutes or until chips are melted when stirred.
  • 2. Beat melted peanut butter chips and butter in large bowl until well blended. Add brown sugar, corn syrup and eggs; beat until fluffy. Stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add half of flour mixture to butter mixture; beat on low speed of mixer until smooth. With wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour mixture until well blended. Divide into thirds; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until dough is firm enough to roll, at least 1 hour.
  • 3. Heat oven to 325°F. On lightly floured surface, roll 1 dough portion at a time to 1/8-inch thickness; with floured cookie cutters, cut into holiday shapes. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Frost and decorate as desired. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
