Peanut Butter Reeses Pieces Giant Cookie….for One.

Ever needed a recipe to bake just one cookie for yourself someone without having to make a full or even half batch? Well I happen to get that urge occasionally and have wanted to develop a recipe for ONE giant cookie for a while now. I love how it turned out and love that you can whip up the cookie dough in less than 5 minutes, how fun is that?!

I used Reeses Pieces and Goobers (chocolate covered peanuts) inside my cookies but any of your favorite candy works just fine.


Here’s the little recipe ingredient line up!

You don’t even need your mixer for this cookie dough , just you and your mixing bowl ๐Ÿ™‚

Add your butter and sugars to the bowl.

Time to whisk until well combined.

Like so.

When you read my recipe below, you will see you use 2 tablespoons beaten egg. Give one large egg a whisk then you can measure it out.

Beaten egg, ready to measure out.

Pour your 2 tablespoons into the bowl.

Add a little vanilla then mix, mix, mix ๐Ÿ™‚

Time for 2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter. Add it to your bowl and mix to combine.

Almost done….Add your flour, baking soda and salt to the wet ingredients.

Love the way the light hit the flour here ๐Ÿ™‚

Mix half way then add your candy pieces.

I used these little morsels of deliciousness.

Add them right to your dough. Only about 1/4 cup each.

Mix until you get a fabulous dough.

Ahhhh, like this.

Take a massive cookie scoop or large spoon and transfer it to a parchment lined baking sheet.

How sweet! Time to bake….350 degrees F for 18-22 minutes.

Right out of the oven.

Can’t wait for you to try this one! Enjoy.

  Look at the inside of this baby!! Enjoy:)

    Thank you! Can you adapt this for chocolate chip? Without the peanut butter, what would you use instead? More butter?
    I also have another question – in the photos where you have the chunk of butter in the bowl, it looks like some of the butter has melted. Do you microwave it for a few seconds to soften it or was your bowl hot?
    Need to try this soon.

    1. Hi Larissa, I’d have to write you a whole new recipe. It would be completely different for chocolate chip. I will work on one and post in in the near future ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. what a cute idea. my family would go nuts for these giant cookies. i love that it only makes one! perfect. none left for mommy-nibbling!

  3. Valerie

    I love this. Goobers are my fav movie treat. Also love RP & PB. Gonna have to try it. What if I want a while batch? Just time by 5 or so?

  4. This is genius!
    I always just want one cookies, but end up making the whole batch. While too many cookies is never a bad thing…it is when they all end up in my tummy!
    I’ll definitely be using these, maybe even tweaking it to fit my favorite cookie recipe!!

  5. Did you know that Reese’s sells its peanut butter in jars? Best peanut butter out there, and pretty natural/goof for you, too!

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks!

      Trying making your own peanut butter, if you have a food processor it’s very easy! 4 cups of dry roasts peanuts and give it a swirl floor a few minutes

  6. Allie Q

    Made this today. Reese’s pieces and mini semi chocolate chips. Shared it with my two girls we loved it. Will make this again and again.

  7. Yum! My favorite photo is of the scoop of cookie dough! Just a few inches closer to me and I could take a bite of those yummy Reese’s Pieces!!!

    Chocolate and Peanut Butter! THE best combo IMHO!!!

  8. I was going to ask the same question: can we follow the same recipe but put chocolate chips instead of Reeses pieces? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    PB-chocolate combo is my fav!

  9. That’s what I’m taking about! Forgot those tiny cookies small enough to fit in a glass for dipping. A cookie that size of a plate, almost a pie cookie. Now that’s the ticket. Love the extras inside this monster cookie. It looks so good, Jenny!

  10. YUM! What a perfect cookie- love your tutorial, I have never had a goober candy, but I am married to a Goober- JK- that’s what I call him sometime, didn’t know there was a candy…have to get it for stocking stuffers!

  11. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme

    Oh my goodness can I have one of these now please! Love this idea. Actually thinking of making some of these and putting them in the holiday gift baskets I am making. Wrap them up with plastic wrap and tie with a bow. These would be so cute in a gift basket and who wouldn’t love to nibble on this cookie! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but I am going to ask anyways! ๐Ÿ™‚ Does it matter if you cook it on a small cookie sheet or can it be a bigger one? I just want to know if I need to buy one to make these. They look so yummy, that I just want them turn out right. Thank You!

  13. I’ve been trying pretty hard lately to stick with my ‘going to the gym, eating healthy, losing weight’ plan. Tonight though, I started to have the WORST craving for something sweet, and deliciously unhealthy and I remembered seeing this recipe!

    I ended up cutting the recipe in half (figured it was a good compromise since I was breaking my healthy eating routine!) and it was delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe and for satisfying my need-something-sweet craving ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Oh my goodness!! This is genius. And gorgeous. And probably my favorite flavors ever in a cookie. You are awesome!! Totally comin back to pin this from my other computer… and stumbling… and tweeting… and anything else I can think of! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Kristy

    Ummm. Seriously! This is amazing but so not cool. I should not know how to make this. I love and hate you all at the same time.

  16. I made a double batch of these cookies for one this morning and I wasn’t prepared for exactly how huge they are! My co-workers will be happy for the leftovers on Monday. Thanks for the great recipe! I will definitely be making this again.

  17. I made this last week and loved the novelty of one giant cookie coming out of the oven! It was beautiful and delicious but certainly NOT for one – I couldn’t even finish 1/4 of it!

  18. Victoria

    Delicious! My cookie turned out so crumbly on the edges but gooey and chewy in the middle. Thanks for the easy recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Francesca

    Love, Love, LOVE this cookie idea! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made a giant cookie since you posted this recipe. My boyfriend and I always split the cookie…so I don’t feel entirely guilty! We’ve tried lots of different ingredients…all delish! I typically use 1/2 a banana in place of the egg…just cook it a few extra minutes. Gooey is good, though! ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite is with M&Ms and Peanut Butter Cups! YUM!

  20. Natalie

    Just made this recipe with chocolate chips instead of the candies and it’s delicious. And you weren’t kidding–this is a GIANT cookie! I couldn’t even eat all of it by myself! That’s ok, though. Just more for me tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing this!

  21. Lindsey

    Got a craving for cookies and made this last night, it satisfied that craving and beyond! This cookie is giant- I even had part of it left and plan to eat it tonight. Such a great easy and quick recipe to cure those cravings!
