How to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies 

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies have a peanut butter base and are packed with Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. 

Measured out cup of peanut butter

Start by making the base for the Peanut Butter Cookies by creaming the butter and sugars together and then adding all of the wet ingredients together.

Next, add the dry ingredients like flour, baking soda, and salt. Then stir in the peanut butter morsels and a few of the Reese’s Pieces.

Crushed peanut butter cups

Add in a little bit of the crushed Peanut Butter Cups (you will want to save most of the candy for the tops of the cookies). 

Scoop of peanut butter cup cookie dough

Use a cookie scoop to get all of the cookies about the same size and place them on your prepared baking sheet. 

Bake the cookies according to the directions and then let them cool on the baking sheet when you remove them from the oven.

Can Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies be frozen?

Yes! My favorite part about these cookies is they are super easy to store in the freezer in an airtight container or freezer bag.

Bite Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

Freeze them without the extra candy on top, bake according to the directions (no need to thaw), and then top off the cookies with extra candy after baking.

Reese's Peanut Butter cookie dough balls

I like to go ahead and make cookie balls and put them in a freezer safe container or freezer bag! That way I just have to put them on the pan and bake accordingly! 

Cut Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies

Can I add chocolate chips to these peanut butter cookies?

Absolutely! If you want to add chocolate chips to the recipe instead of the Reese’s Pieces or Reese’s Cups, go for it! It would be the perfect chocolate peanut butter cookie. 

Top the cookies with extra chocolate chips or M&Ms for a fun garnishing!
