3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

I know I always refer to my recipes as simple, but this one really takes the cake.  Without a doubt, this is the easiest, most basic cookie recipe I have… And they’re totally delicious.  Considering I could eat an entire jar of peanut butter by the spoonful and be completely happy, it’s no surprise that I can make a peanut butter cookie with minimal ingredients added to the peanut butter 🙂

You will need:

1 Cup sugar

1 Cup peanut butter

1 egg

That’s it.  That’s all you need.


Pre-heat your oven to 350.  Combine your ingredients.  Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough on to a cookie sheet, leaving an inch or two in between.  For a classic looking peanut butter cookie, cross hatch the top of it by pressing a fork, dipped in sugar (which will prevent the fork from sticking or pulling the dough up) into it twice, alternating directions.  Bake for about 8 minutes, until the edges are just SLIGHTLY golden — these cookies are definitely best when they are still chewy, so be sure not to over cook them 🙂

These have the perfect peanut butter taste, and aren’t cakey or heavy like a normal peanut butter cookie.  Chewy and delicious and easy, you can’t beat it!
