  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 firmly packed rounded tablespoon of dark brown sugar
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • small pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 egg yolk do not use the egg white
  • Scant 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour scant means slightly less than full
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 full-sized Reese's Peanut Butter Cup


  1. Start by melting your butter in the microwave. Butter should just be melted, not boiling.
  2. Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine.
  4. Add flour, then stir again. Measure a scant, slightly less than full, 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour.
  5. Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir. Now your mixture will look like cookie dough.
  6. Add Reese's peanut butter cup and press down into dough. Smooth cookie dough over peanut butter cup so it is completely covered.
  7. Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. Mine takes 50 seconds.
  8. Do not cook past one minute, just like a regular cookie, this will continue cooking as it cools.
  9. If the cookie is dry or cake like, try less time.
  10. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
