So Peanutty! Peanut Butter Cookies.

Peanut Butter Cookies

These little cookies are soooo good and they were the perfect way to use up all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs I happen to have………Except I can’t stop eating them myself. Help!

Reese's Eggs

Reese’s always seems to make an appearance around the house during Easter… and Christmas … and Valentine’s Day. Just about any day there’s a reason to celebrate. I’d definitely say they are my go to candy.

Sweet little peanut butter eggs… ALL chopped up!!!

But these cookies are jam-packed with even more peanut power.

Peanutty!

Creamy peanut butter and chopped peanuts round these cookies out.

Cookie Dough

The dough is to die for.

Cookie Dough

Use a cookie scoop for evenly sized cookies. Place scooped dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Then roll each scoop in chopped peanuts and sugar and bake away.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Just a few minutes in the oven …

and then these soft little bites of peanut butter yumminess can jump in your mouth.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

  1. I can’t explain how much I love Reese’s I need to try this recipe badly. Hope you had a nice Easter x

  2. I LOVE peanut butter, especially in cookies! I recently made some but to counteract how sweet the peanut butter can be, I added dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate and they seemed to go down very well! http://myownbakeoff.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/peanut-butter-and-dark-chocolate-chip.html?m=1

    And you can never beat a good peanut butter and jelly cupcake either…

  17. I made this recipe today and was wondering if salted peanuts were okay to use. Also, I had a hard time getting them to stick to the cookie dough when I rolled them. But everyone still said they were good!

  18. Made these yesterday, oh my! They are so good. Taking most of them to the grandkids today, froze the rest. Must get them out of sight so I do ‘t gobble them all up!

  19. I really must look out for some sweety

  20. Now this is all I can think about. Damn they look like some gooood cookies.

  21. I like your idea of rolling them in crushed peanuts!

  22. I love peanut butter cookies, and my love for Reece’s eggs knows no bounds. In fact, I’m fairly certain they make up for 51 of the 60 lbs I gained in my first pregnancy. (The other 9 were the baby.) I just don’t know if I could ever bring my self to actually cut and bake them into a cookie…they would never survive long enough to make it into the dough! These look so good!

  23. I’ve got the milk … please, pass the cookies!

    Love your idea of rolling the cookies in peanuts and sugar :)

  24. yummy!! I love this cookies.

  25. Made these for my family and they were gone in two days! (I did share them with co-workers.) Now my family wants me to make more.

  26. Im cookie crazy.Love baking these for everyone.

  27. Hi hi Bakerella! I always check your blog every week to ogle the yummy treats I shouldn’t be eating :) for Halloween I bought a big bag of Reese’s “pumpkins” but this was our first Halloween in out brand new home…and apparently our neighborhood gets about 3 trick or treaters! I love these pumpkins more than anything, but I’m trying to eat healthy so I stuck them in a Rubbermaid and hid them on top of my fridge. Now I knew one day you would post a recipe using these candies, and sure enough you did!!! I was so excited to finally make one of your treats and they came out spectacular! I made them for a friend’s surprise 30th, I like them warm so I microwave for 10 seconds before I gobble them up…hopefully I will have some to bring to the party! Haha

  28. I made these this week and WOW! My favorite peanut butter cookie ever (and I am cookie snob). I added all the chopped peanuts to the batter and only used 1/2 a bag of Reese’s minis (mostly because I got bored with opening the candy). Awesomeness!

  29. Unfortunately, we don’t have Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs over her :)

    Thanks!!!
