Ingredients List

For the Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Toppings:

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups

Equipment:

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or silicone baking mat
  • KitchenAid stand mixer or hand mixer

Step-by-Step Recipe Instructions

Make the Cookies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer), cream together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing well. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
  4. Blend in the salt, baking soda, and gradually add the flour until the dough comes together.
  5. Scoop 1/4 cup portions of dough onto the baking sheet, spacing them well apart. Flatten each ball into a thick disk.
  6. Bake for 11-12 minutes until the cookies have a crackly appearance and the centers are just set. Allow them to cool on the pan for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare Toppings:

  1. Melt the peanut butter chips with the vegetable oil in a microwave-safe bowl, using 20-second increments to avoid scorching.
  2. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of melted peanut butter chips over each cooled cookie, drizzling it all over.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups over the top for that signature Crumbl look and Reese’s flavor.

Tips for Perfect Copycat Crumbl Cookies

  • Ensure your butter and egg are at room temperature to achieve a smooth, well-incorporated dough.
  • Don’t overbake the cookies to keep that signature soft, slightly underdone Crumbl texture.
  • Let the cookies cool slightly before applying the toppings to prevent them from melting too much into the cookie.

Serving and Storage Suggestions

These cookies are best enjoyed at room temperature or slightly warmed to enhance the flavors.

Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days, or refrigerate for up to 6 days.

For longer storage, freeze the unbaked dough balls and bake straight from the freezer, adding an extra minute to the bake time.

Pairing Recommendations

Pair these rich, peanut buttery cookies with a tall glass of cold milk, a cup of strong coffee, or a light, fruity tea to balance their decadence.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I use natural peanut butter? For best results, stick to conventional creamy peanut butter, as natural varieties can alter the texture and moisture content of the cookies.
  • My cookies spread too much, what can I do? Chill your dough for 30 minutes before baking to help control spread and maintain a thicker cookie.

Conclusion

Creating these Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Crumbl Cookies is a delightful way to bring the gourmet cookie shop experience home. They’re perfect for special occasions, gifts, or simply when you’re in the mood for something decadently sweet.
