Giant Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookie for One

by Erin

If you’re only going to eat one cookie, make it a giant one! This face-sized Reese’s peanut putter cookie for one could also serve four, but why limit yourself?

Did you know that November is Peanut Butter Lover’s Month? Cause I didn’t find out until halfway through the month and still somehow only made one thing with peanut butter. How on earth did I let this happen? Even during a normal month I make more than ONE = total failure. So yesterday, realizing I had only one day left to redeem myself, I decided to make the giant “single-serving” cookie I had seen on Picky Palate earlier this month.

Giant Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cookie for One (or Four)

Seriously Jenny was much too kind/generous of the portions on this one. But do not take that as a complaint, more like praise! This made my cookie- and peanut butter-loving heart melt.

Hello lover.

It’s what’s on the inside that counts.

If you only eat half, it doesn’t seem like such a gluttonous act.

Who am I kidding?

Pretty sure I covered the peanut butter deficit this month with that alone.

Now that I have checked that off my list of things to do, I can move onto Part 2 of my idea of “good living”. As I mentioned in Part 1, FAGE Total Authentic Greek yogurt has partnered with Foodbuzz to giveaway an 8 day trip to Greece to one lucky Foodbuzz Featured Publisher and we get three chances to enter, by discussing what “good living” means to each of us.

For me, another part of “good living” is keeping my inner child alive. I have been told on numerous occasions that I am very easy to please, and I believe it is because I find joy in the simple things. I hope that I will never say “I’m too old for that now”, thinking that certain things are below what “an adult” should/should not do.

Playgrounds always call my name, animated films are still one of my favorite movie genres, god forbid someone gets between me and a cookie (see above), and I just enjoy all things silly. I could go on and on, but I think my dad says it best – “I don’t ever want to grow up because grown-ups are boring”.

So go ahead. Go eat this entire size-of-your-face cookie while dancing in your SpongeBob pajama shorts (yea I may have just outed myself).
