Guys these Peanut Butter cookies are no joke… There’s a new and different taste in every bite and so much flavor your taste buds won’t know what to do with themselves.
Anyone who’s ever looked in our pantry knows there is always at least one package of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, and the biggest jar of peanut butter you can buy. To say we are a peanut butter loving family would be an understatement.The key to my husband’s heart is a fresh batch of peanut butter cookies, like my peanut butter gooey butter cookies. So I knew these peanut butter blowout cookies would be a huge hit.
Man was I right, I’ve never seen cookies disappear from a pan so fast in my life. It was like I was living with a group of little peanut butter gremlins.
These cookies are even great for taking to parties or gatherings, as long as you check for allergies first.My daughters are obsessed with the bachelor franchise (I don’t get it, but to each their own I guess) and they have a girls night watch party every Monday with some friends.
Watch parties are never complete without a good snack making it the perfect place for Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies.Nothing pairs better with drama and gossip than a good cookie and all of their friends agreed. Bachelor night and these cookies were a match made in heaven, unlike most of the couples that come out of the show 😉
This is not your ordinary peanut butter cookie. This peanut butter cup cookie is packed full of peanut butter, chocolate chips, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis and honey roasted peanuts. The ultimate peanut butter lover’s cookie recipe
- 2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 8 ounces Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis, chopped
- 1 cup honey roasted peanuts, chopped
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- kosher salt.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
- Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat on high until well incorporated, stopping to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the peanut butter and, continue mixing on high until well combined.
- Carefully add flour mixture to wet ingredients; mix on low just until combined and soft dough is formed. Add in chopped peanut butter cup, chopped peanuts, and chocolate chips; mix on low until combined.
- Chill the dough for about 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Preheat oven to 350° and line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mats.
- Scoop chilled dough into heaping tablespoon balls, or use a large (3 tablespoon) cookie scoop for larger cookies and place on prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of kosher salt. Bake each batch until lightly browned on the sides. The centers will look soft; 10-12 minutes for small cookies or 15-18 minutes for large cookies.
- Remove cookies from oven and let cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
- Cookie dough can be chilled in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Bring to almost room temperature (I find slightly chilled dough easier to work with) before scooping.
- Baked cookies or unbaked cookie dough balls can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute, no need to thaw.
