Peanut Butter Reese's Pieces Cookies

The idea for this recipe came to us while we were hunkered down for Hurricane Dorian. The kids and I were getting a little bit of cabin fever so we decided to make some cookies. This recipe was adapted from one passed down by my Nana. She added a little bit of milk to this cookie recipe which I am sure helps with the chewiness that this cookie has.

Deliciously soft and chewy peanut butter cookies loaded with Reese's Pieces!


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup Reese's Pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  6. Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. If desired line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up. If you have some extra reese's pieces stick a couple into the top of each dough ball so you can see them after they bake.

If you prefer a less chewy cookie bake for 1-2 additional minutes.
