Loaded Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Loaded Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes peanut butter doesn’t hold a candle to chocolate.

And sometimes I get a craving that only peanut butter can satiate.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

Well last night I got a whopper of a peanut butter craving. The Husband is out of town so I decide to cave (He’s not a big fan of the peanut butter cookie. I know, who is this man?!).

I started perusing my Pinterest boards to find a new recipe to try. I’ve been wanting try this one by Averie at Averie Cooks for a while now, but you have to refrigerate it over night.

How was that going to help me now?

And this ridiculously, amazing XL Bakery-Style Peanut Butter Cookie from Crazy For Crust has been on my list for a while now too…Refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Four hours? That’s like an eternity!

So I decided to forget trying a new recipe, and to use old-faithful. The no-fail, super peanut buttery, chewy cookie that you can have in the oven in 5 minutes!

5 minutes! Now we are on the same page!

And because a peanut butter cookie wasn’t enough peanut butter for this craving, I folded in some mini Reese’s peanut butter cups and Reese’s chips. I was on peanut butter cloud 9.

This time I also made them bigger. Because when has a bigger cookie proven to be worse?

Never. That’s when.

The larger cookie also accommodates the Reese’s chips better. More cookie to love!

It makes 8 cookies, which, by my calculation, is enough for one person, maybe two.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 8 XL Cookies

Loaded Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

These oversized Loaded Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies are a no-fail, super peanut buttery, chewy cookie that you can have in the oven in 5 minutes! Fast, easy AND delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter (I use Jiff, because it’s amazing.)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar, loosely packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • ¼ cup (rounded) Reese’s peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Throw the first five ingredients in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer until well blended, about 2 minutes. Stir in chips and mini Reese’s cups. Wasn’t that crazy easy? Tap your foot in impatience until the oven actually finishes preheating.
  3. Scoop 2” cookie scoop sized balls of dough onto baking sheet and space them 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 11-14 minutes. I baked mine for 12 minutes but I am a habitual under baker. Let cool on the cookie sheet before removing. They will fall apart.
  5. Try not to eat them all in one sitting.

    Ok, these? They are some majorly, serious, nummy-ness going on. I could go for at least 1/2 dozen of these right now and another 1/2 dozen for breakfast! Because I can imagine these going amazing with coffee!

      Oooooo. You are so right! These would be AMAZING with coffee! You’d better whip up a double batch, because when someone takes the last one of these cookies, it’s like the end of the world. For serious.

    Hi I am planning to make these but just wanted to double check that there is no flour in the cookie? Flour wasn’t listed in the ingredients and want to be sure before I make them. They look spectacular!!!

    They are very tasty, but is there really supposed to be no flour? They came out falling apart even after sitting when out of the oven. Did I miss something?

      They are flourless so you really have to make sure to cream the ingredients well. They are more crumbly than the original ones I baked. These hold together better the fewer “add-ins” they have in them. The last cookie of the batch, I really smashed it together before I baked it. Overall they were more crumbly than I would want a chocolate chip cookie, but I didn’t have a problem with them falling apart after baking.
