Giant Peanut Butter Cookie

Peanut Butter Cookies are always a big hit, but have you ever made a Giant Peanut Butter Cookie? That's right, I'm talking about one extra large peanut butter cookie that can be enjoyed alone or shared. This Giant Peanut Butter Cookie is sure to impress anyone with its delicious peanut butter flavor, crispy edges, and soft center.

This Giant Peanut Butter Cookie is a one bowl recipe that comes together quickly and uses basic ingredients you most likely have on hand. Baking the cookie at a lower temperature of 250º for around 30 minutes is what ensures those crispy edges and that deliciously soft center.

My Peanut Butter Cookies are so well loved that I wanted to take a fun twist on the classic and create a giant version. If you love this recipe, make sure to check out my Giant Sugar Cookie recipe as well!

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE GET STARTED

Now let's bake! Preheat your oven to 250º. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend together the butter, sugars, and peanut butter on medium speed until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add in the egg yolk and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix just until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Place the bowl of dough in the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes. Form dough into a ball and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press it down slightly so that it is about 4 ½ inches in diameter.

Pour more sugar on a small plate. Carefully pick up the dough and roll the top and sides of it in the sugar before placing back on the cookie sheet. Bake the cookie for 28-32 minutes.

Let the cookie cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving it to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
