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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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

    I love that it’s a giant cookie. And that it’s all for one πŸ™‚ Nice!

    Reeses pieces AND Goobers..even better. Awesome job, Jenny!

    Jenny, will you marry me? <3

    You’re a genius!

  4. 4

    yep, it’s official…i’m in big big trouble with this recipe!

    Larissa says:

    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.

      Jenny says:

      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 πŸ™‚

    This combines the three best things ever: Peanuts, peanuts, and peanuts.
    And cookie dough. <3333

    Sue says:

    What a nice, substantial cookie! Love it! And I can say truthfully that I only ate ONE cookie:)

  14. 14

    Mmmmmm! Looks like the perfect cookie for two! (Or one….)

    Fallon says:

    I would not share this cookie with no one. All for me!!! The inside looks amazing, I’m making this cookie when I REALLLY want a cookie!

    Sara says:

    Ha! Perfect! I love that you serve it with a fork and knife. That’s my kind of lunch!!

    Yeah, I’d eat this whole thing myself! Yum!

  20. 20
  21. 21

    Yummy! I’m not a big fan of the outside edge of the cookie, so I like making huge cookies too so there’s more middle for me! πŸ™‚

  22. 22
    Valerie says:

    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?

  23. 23

    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!!

  24. 24

    Such a fun recipe. I’m drooling at the thought of sitting down to this cookie. All. By. My. Self. πŸ˜‰

    Sandra says:

    Perfect portion control.

    Kay says:

    This is so cute and looks delicious!

  27. 27

    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!

      Tami says:

      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

  28. 28

    cookie (check) peanut butter over load (check – check – check) and… ALL FOR ME?!?! πŸ™‚ I couldn’t be happier!!

  30. 30

    I hardly ever make giant cookies but they are so fun plus, less work! This would make a fun game night treat!

  31. 31

    Reece’s Pieces are my favorite. I would for sure not be sharing this. I want one now!!

  32. 32
  33. 33

    Have I mentioned you’re my new favorite person EVER? God, I so need this after a Monday. You should get a trophy. Can we arrange that?

    Monica says:

    SO delicious! Your rock =D

  35. 35

    YUM! I want to make this for myself right NOW!

  36. 36

    I just made this tonight and it was delicious! Split it into 4 pieces and shared…although I could have eaten the whole thing!

  37. 37
    Allie Q says:

    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.

  38. 38

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

  39. 39

    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!!!

  40. 40
    Savorique says:

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

    • 40.1

      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.

  41. 41
    Jo F. says:

    That is just…awesome!

  42. 42

    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!

    K says:

    i can hear my skinny jeans whimpering in my closet as i read this

  44. 44

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

    Natasha D. says:

    Ohh, man this looks so good!

    MikeVFMK says:

    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!

  47. 47

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

  48. 48
    Anna says:

    Amazing idea!

  49. 49

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

    Nettie Moore says:

    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!

  51. 51
    Jennifer @ Mother Thyme says:

    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! πŸ™‚

  52. 52

    […] I’m so ready to start planning and decorating and celebrating πŸ™‚ I found this recipe on Picky Palate the other day. It’s a recipe that makes one (large) cookie. I’ve been experimenting […]

  53. 53

    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!!

  54. 54
    Brooke says:

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but I am going to ask anyways! πŸ™‚ 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!

    Happy Birthday! =)

  56. 56

    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 πŸ™‚

    Amanda says:

    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! πŸ™‚

    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.

    Vicki says:

    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!

  64. 64

    […] to redeem myself, I decided to make the giant “single-serving” cookie I had seen on Picky Palate earlier this […]

  65. 65

    This is exactly what I was looking for today. Thank you!

    Victoria says:

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

  67. 67

    […] DIRECTIONS: In a medium bowl whisk together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg substitute, vanilla, and peanut butter, whisking until well combined. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, whisking again until well combined. Stir in the Reeses Pieces and chocolate-covered peanuts until. Scoop all of the dough in one big blob onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 deg F for 20-22 minutes, until cooked through. Let the giant cookie cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy! Based on Picky Palate’s Peanut Butter Reeses Pieces Giant Cookie for One. […]

    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! πŸ™‚ My favorite is with M&Ms and Peanut Butter Cups! YUM!
