You cannot go wrong with these seemingly impossible cookies.  Who knew you could get cookies from such basic ingredients?!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Mix until fluffy.
  3. Scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 11 minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. Cool on the cookie sheet.
  6. These cookies are very delicate and will fall apart if you try to move them when warm.

This is one of the easiest recipes.  Three ingredients mix together, baked and voila!  You have rich, delicate cookies.

    1. I use natural peanut butter. Just make sure the peanut butter is well mixed with the oil in the jar before using.

  13. Hi! I reduced replaced the sugar with honey and reduced to a 1/2 cup, plus I added a1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder. So good!
