Reese’s {Freezer-Friendly} Oatmeal Cookies

Reese's Freezer-Friendly Oatmeal Cookies | Mom On Timeout - Chewy, chunky, and just downright delicious!  #cookies #recipe #Reeses

So I think most of you know about my great love for anything Reese’s {including my son…}.  I also have a passion for slow cooker and freezer meals.  I {HEART} anything that saves me time ;)  I love being able to make up a batch of cookies and freeze half of the dough for later.  Saves me time and calories – both things I need ;)  Oatmeal cookies are always a big hit around our house.  Oatmeal and Raisin, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip, heck – we even enjoy Zucchini Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal + Anything = Yummy for Your Tummy

Reece was helping me make the cookies and as I was pulling out the ingredients he said “Don’t you think we should taste the candy FIRST to make sure it will go good with the cookies?”  That’s my boy!  Such a smart cookie ;)

My Reese’s {Freezer-Friendly} Oatmeal Cookies features not one, but TWO types of Reese’s.  That’s how much I love you Reese’s…can you feel it?  Can you?  Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and Reese’s Pieces pair perfectly with the oatmeal in these “wholesome” cookies {I can say that right??? There IS lots of oatmeal in these babies…}  I like to bake them up and then dot them with a few extra Reese’s Pieces so they look extra yummy and oh so inviting…”Come eat me…and my little friend here…and don’t forget the milk!”  Yeah.  It’s hard to eat only one of these cookies.  Let’s just say the official serving size for these cookies is 2 cookies.  That way we’re covered.  And if you eat half of a third…well obviously THAT doesn’t count :)

Freezing cookie dough balls couldn’t be easier.  The dough is a tad sticky so just wet your hands with water before rolling the balls.  Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet {making sure they are not touching} and place in your freezer for an hour to flash-freeze them.

Next, just place the dough balls into a ziploc bag and into the freezer they go.

  25. Thanks for this recipe. I made them and got about 3 dozen, but they are so small and didn’t spread out much from the balls I rolled – they don’t look like the ones you made. Any tips for getting them to flatten? Could you flatten before you bake?

    I made these cookies on monday. I looooooooved them. I was eating them for breakfast they were so good. Good thing I froze some of the dough because i could go for some now.

  27. These look delicious! Do you have any special instructions if I wanted to bake them right away? Should you refrigerate or freeze the dough at all before baking?

    I found this recipe this afternoon and had to make them right away. I have been craving a good oatmeal cookie ans these hit the spot. I added a.couple of big ol’ heaping tablespoons of Peanut butter and some chocolate chips (someone had eaten half of my reese pieces, might or might it has been me) they tired out so good. Thanks!!!

  30. Made these today/night. Froze some & cooked some to have with dinner. They are great, I made them as the recipe reads no changes.
