Recipe: Easy Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

There is nothing better than the classic peanut butter cookie and a glass of milk. Here is a recipe using three ingredients that will make you very happy!

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Mix together. Plop on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.

Seriously, it’s that easy.

I use a cookie dough scoop to make mine nice and round. But you could just use whatever spoon you have! I then use the crisscross fork trick to flatten them down. If you are making them into the ever popular peanut butter blossom cookie, just leave them as a round ball and after baking, squish a Hershey’s kiss on top. This recipe also works perfect in a cookie press!

My biggest cookie making tip is not to over cook them! Take them out just before they are done and let sit on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a cooling rack. This lets the sugars crystallize and the cookie will harden but still stay soft inside!
