Share it:

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. "

Preparation

Preheat Oven to 350. Grease Cookie Sheet

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.

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?

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

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

I have used this recipe for years, with the addition of 1 tsp of Vanilla. These are great cookies. The only advice I will give, it take note that all these ingredients turn to liquid in the oven, so when you check them for doneness, you will be tempted to leave them in the oven just a couple minutes longer. DO NOT!!! they will cool and harden when you take them out. I cook them for 11 minutes and no more. These are quick to burn, so keep a watchful eye on them. They are worth it though, these are the best peanut butter cookies ever.
