Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Ready in 18 minutes

This is an easy cheap peanut butter cookie recipe. Only 3 ingredients!! Try it you'll love these rich delicious cookies. Try adding a cup of M&Ms or chocolate chips to change it up.

"Just made these cookies today for my 7 yr old (and the rest of my family who ended up devouring them) and they came out great. We used the exact ingredients that this recipe called for and I was able to make 12 cookies. I ended up baking them for a few min longer (i think it's my oven) and they came out great. Peanut butter cookies are always crumbly and always a little dry (from what I have tasted). Drink them with milk and have a plate handy! I definitely recommend this recipe. Will make again in the near future. "

Mix together all ingredients PB, Egg, and Sugar so that all ingredients are evenly disbursed. Roll mixture into half dollar sized balls. Place balls evenly on cookie sheet. Take a fork and press down on to ball and then press again the opposite way to somewhat flatten the ball. ( to get that nice crisscross pattern on the cookie) Place cookies in the oven and bake approximately 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness of cookie. Let cookies cool down mostly before eating them to avoid breakage. This cookies are rich and hearty and everyone will love them.

Super easy and delicious! I even tried dipping one side of them in melted chocolate chips for extra sweetness!

This is a super easy way to make peanut butter cookies. The last time I used this recipe, the cookies lasted less than 24 hours.

These turned out much better than I expected.Very good! Only 3 ingredients...wow! I baked them for about 11 min. Next time I may add a tbsp of flour to reduce the minor grainy texture; which did not take away from these cookies at all. These definatley satisfied the sweet tooth.
