3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

3 ingredient peanut butter cookies are the easiest cookies I have ever made. From start to finish these peanut butter cookies took less than an hour and they tasted fantastic.

These cookies turn out soft and gooey. They are so easy, you will want to make these cookies all the time.

Next time I am going to double the recipe.

This recipe made about 2 dozen cookies which didn't last long in my house.

My granddaughters are coming for a sleepover in a couple weeks, maybe I will let them make these cookies since they are so easy to make.

Preparation for Your 3 Ingredient Cookies:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

You will need a medium mixing bowl, a wooden spoon and a fork, a one cup measuring cup, cookie sheets, an air tight container to keep them in, and a wire rack to put them on to cool off.

Gather Your Ingredients:

Make sure you have everything for your 3 ingredient cookies.

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Creating Your 3 ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies Masterpiece:

  • Blend peanut butter, sugar, and the egg together in a large mixing bowl until well blended.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and if you prefer, using a fork dipped in water so the dough doesn't stick to the fork, flatten the cookies.
  • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. But watch closely so you don't overcook these cookies. You want them to be soft and just starting to turn golden brown.

This recipe will make between 18-24 cookies depending on the size of the cookie so you might want to double or even triple this recipe.

I didn't flatten these cookies with a fork and I found that the thicker cookies were not quite done in the center, they tasted great but I should have let them cook for another minute or two.
