There is just nothing to satisfy a sweet tooth like the combo of peanut butter and chocolate.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

Here is what you will need to make Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies (the full list of ingredients and instructions are below in the printable recipe card):

  • Peanut butter – Use creamy peanut butter for the correct texture and consistency.
  • Butter – Soften the butter at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before you begin making the cookies.
  • Sugars – granulated and brown sugar.
  • Egg – Just one egg will bind the cookie batter together.
  • Milk – We used whole milk, but a lower fat content would also work well.
  • Vanilla extract – Vanilla adds a little touch of extra flavor.
  • Flour – Basic all-purpose flour is just right for this recipe.
  • Baking powder – Baking powder helps the cookies puff up while they bake.
  • Salt – Just a little salt helps bring out the sweetness of the cookies.
  • Chocolate chips – Use semi-sweet chocolate chips (milk chocolate chips tend to burn too quickly).
  • Reese’s Pieces – Reese’s pieces add more peanut butter flavor and nice texture to the cookies, plus a pop of color. We use regular, but feel free to use mini reese’s pieces.

How to Make Reese’s Pieces Cookies

  • With an electric mixer, beat together the creamy peanut butter, softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture is creamy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this to the wet mixture and mix until combined.
  • Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup of the Reese’s Pieces.
  • Scoop the cookie dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
  • Add some extra Reese’s Pieces to the top of each cookie, then bake at 350ºF for 8-10 minutes, just until set.
  • Cool the cookies on wire cooling racks before eating.
  • We love these cookies with a glass of ice cold milk!

Variations:

For peanut butter lovers (like me) to give these cookies extra peanut butter flavor, add in some peanut butter chips. Another idea is to use Reese’s Pieces minis instead or regular or include chopped reese’s peanut butter cups.

Storing Reese’s Pieces Cookies:

You’ll want to keep the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature so they can keep fresh for up to three days. Another option would be to bag the cookies in zip top freezer bags and freeze for up to three months.
