Giant Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookie

This Giant Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookie is the ultimate dessert for one! It’s crispy on the edges and perfectly chewy in the center!

Giant Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookie

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!

How to Make This Giant Cookie

You don’t even need your mixer for this cookie dough , just you and your mixing bowl 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

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:)

    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!

  2. 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 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!

  3. Bridget@MrsGreenJeans

    Oh My Goodness I have to make this..I’m in heaven or food coma I’m not sure but this looks divine!!!!

  4. 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! 🙂 My favorite is with M&Ms and Peanut Butter Cups! YUM!

  5. Melissa

    I just finished making (& eating half) of this. Holy cow, it was delicious. I’ll be blogging it this week. Thanks!

  6. Anna

    Any chance you could share a recipe for a full batch of “regular” (not giant) sized cookies?

  7. Victoria

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

  8. Vicki

    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!

  9. Lauren

    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.

  10. Brooke

    LOVE your blog and this recipe is the bomb! I can’t wait to use this recipe with my little ones. I’ll make sure to stop by often!

  11. 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.

  12. Amanda

    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! 🙂

  13. Annie @ Annie's Cooking Lab

    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 🙂

  14. Brooke

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but I am going to ask anyways! 🙂 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!

  15. Shawn @ I Wash...You Dry

    Not kidding when I say that my eyeballs nearly popped out of my head when I saw the size of that cookie! That is IN-SANE-O! Can I cook one of those up for dinner? Yummy!!

  16. 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! 🙂

  17. Nettie Moore

    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!

  18. Culinary Collage

    Wow….great site! That’s a delicious looking cookie! I love cookies with lots of stuff in them.

  19. Nic@diningwithastud

    Wow! Thats one serious cookie. Im totally obsesses with anything Reeses so am drooling on my keyboard as I type lol

  20. MikeVFMK

    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!

  21. Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen

    You are the queen of ridiculously stuffed, indulgent cookies! This looks like a good one.

  22. The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh

    This looks perfect for the Mr and I to share! I love the idea of not having to make a whole batch just to enjoy some homemade goodness!

  23. Savorique

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

    1. Annie @ Annie's Cooking Lab

      Yes! That’s what I did tonight and it was great. If I’d had Reeses Pieces on hand I definitely would have used them for some extra peanut buttery goodness, but the chocolate chips work just fine instead.

  24. Laura @ GotChocolate

    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!!!

  25. marla {family fresh cooking}

    GIANT. The size all cookies should be. LOVE that you always take it to the best levels! xo

  26. 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.
