I love peanut butter, super versatile, a good source of protein, what more do you need? We always have peanut butter in the house and for good reason, we use it in our granola bars, on toast, and recently I learned a great way to make cookies out of the tasty spread!
This three ingredient recipe is super simple and fool proof, one part sugar, one part peanut butter, and one part egg, throw it all together and you’ve got a quick treat to please the masses!
Full disclosure though, once they bake they start to burn quickly if you don’t take them out right away! Rest in peace to the third pan of my first batch of these babies that died a very crispy death.
Anyway without further ado, here’s the recipe for the easiest peanut butter cookies you’ll ever make!
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350°F, grease a cookie sheet or two and set aside.
Mix together the sugar, peanut butter, and egg until creamy. Take mounds by the tablespoon and roll into small dough balls. Place dough on the cookie sheet and press on the dough with the back of a fork to form a hashtag type pattern. Bake in the oven at 350°F for 10 minutes, be sure to take them out and let set for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
My favorite part of this recipe is how easily you can dress it up, I love to add chocolate chips to these, but would also love to try with crunchy peanut butter, or maybe topping with jelly once cooled for the ultimate pb&j. Whatever your fancy, these quick and easy cookies are a blast and taste great!
