  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Reese's peanut butter chips divided


  • Mix butter, peanut butter and sugars together in a medium bowl with a fork until smooth.
  • Stir in egg until fully incorporated.
  • Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt just until combined.
  • Fold in 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips.
  • Cover dough and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper and use your fingers to pat out the cookie dough to about 1/4 inch thick in a rectangular shape. Leave at least an inch of space around the edges of the sheet for the cookie to expand. (If using a smaller cookie sheet, you may need to use two sheets.)
  • Sprinkle remaining half cup of peanut butter chips over the top. Press down lightly.
  • Bake 7-9 minutes or just until edges are golden brown. Center will look under-baked but will continue cooking after the cookie sheet has been removed from the oven.
  • Let cool before removing to cutting board.
  • Cut into bars or triangles and serve.
  • Store in airtight container for up to one week.
