These are awesome PB cookies. I have used this easy recipe before when we wanted a treat but were in a pinch for ingredients. Most people usually have at the very least these three ingredients at home. Next time the kids (or yourself!) want an awesome treat, give these easy to make PB cookies a try. I did years ago and have been making them with this recipe ever since.

They were easy to make, and nice that you only need 3 ingredients. "IF" I ever make them again, I'll try 1/2 the sugar. They were very very sweet.

My husband loved them. But they were a little too sweet for me. I'll try less sugar next time.

My family absolutely loves these cookies. I have to double the recipe so they don't fight over the cookies. I love the ease of prep.

Glad you enjoyed the cookies! - wvufan1011 4m ago

The cookies were terrific! My oven may run hot though, so I had to adjust the temperature down to 325 and bake for 9 minutes. That seemed to be the perfect combination for me! I also added a tsp of vanilla and some M&Ms. Initially, I added M&Ms to my mixer, but that wasn't a great idea - chops them up. I recommend adding them to the individual cookies as you lay them out on the baking sheet.

I always mix all ingredients first then stir in the m&ms by hand. I'll have to try the vanilla! - wvufan1011 4m ago

Making these today, recipe first was on Jif label. So easy and yummy for the tummy. Hubby requests these more than other cookie. I sprinkle sugar lightly on top right out of the oven.

Glad to know Jif uses this recipe :) - wvufan1011 4m ago

Very simple and delicious. Just made these 30 min ago and they hit the spot. I tweaked it just a bit by adding some chocolate chips, tsp of vanilla and tsp of maple syrup. Yum!! Made 18 cookies

At Deesharif: Do not add flour and let them sit on the pan for 5 min to before removing. Make as directed for gluten free favorite. Super easy.

It is good

Hi. I just made this cookie but with additional 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. Why is it when I bake it at 180C for 15mins, it's still soft and break easily?
deesharif , 1y ago

Made these many times! They are a big hit and super easy
wab214 , 1y ago

Definetly a favorite! Thanks guys for the advice about the 11 mins! They came out perfect! Also, don't be afraid to mix it up. I added chocolate chips and they were delicious! ;d

The cookies were greatt?????? But id like to know the calories of each cookie that's like the size of my palm
nutellaninu , 1y ago

These are the fastest cookies I've ever made. If you cook them for 11min. They will be perfect
angelaridout1 , 1y ago

These are awesome! I used original Jif and they turned out great. I made them along with a Betty Crocker mix and they retained their shape much better while the ones from the mix melted and spread out everywhere
