Reese’s Pieces PB Cookies

Peanut butter is easily in my top 5 favorite flavors, could even possibly make the top 3. Our family goes through a large jar of peanut butter in just a few weeks.

Several weeks ago…during quarantine…my tribe and I decided we needed to acquire some Crumbl cookies, sit in lawn chairs (6ft apart), and catch up with life. At the time Crumbl had their giant Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies. One bite and I knew I would have to recreate the cookie so I could have the amazing yumminess all of the time.

I make these as a giant batch and use an ice cream scoop to make sure the large and excellent peanut butter flavor is not missed. If you want to recreate this recipe, but want normal tablespoon-sized cookies, then cut the recipe in half.
