  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups (401g) peanut butter
  • 1 ½ cups (300g) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons (27ml) milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 ½ cups (434g) all purpose flour
  • 1 package (about 1 ⅔ cups) Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
  • 1 ½ cups chopped peanuts , optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment or a silpat baking mats.
  • Cream butter, peanut butter, and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla, milk, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined. Slowly add flour and mix until dough just comes together. Stir in Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and nuts.
  • Scoop ¼ cupfuls of dough and place on a cookies sheet at least 4-inches apart. Use a fork to press the cookies down with a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes until the bottoms start to become light golden and the cookies are no longer glossy in the center.. Cool about 5 minutes and then remove from cookie sheets.
  • You can make these smaller (1 or 2 tablespoon size) and baking time will be less, about 7-10 minutes. Recipe can also be cut in half for fewer cookies, or doubled for more.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.



If not using peanuts, use about 3 cups of peanut butter chips.
