Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


Would you believe that by using just three simple ingredients, you can make delicious cookies?

Just like my stone soup recipe, you can make them even more tasty by adding a little something something (your choice).

Unlike my stone soup recipe, these are actually divine without the frills.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Combine all ingredients, roll into balls, bake on lightly greased cookie sheets at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Frills: mix in chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, roll the dough in coarsely chopped roasted peanuts. You could place an unwrapped peanut butter cup in the center, or press your thumb in the middle and fill the indentation with jam.

What a great recipe for those that can't tolerate gluten. I have a friend who has celiac's disease. I am bookmarking this so that I can make her a batch. Thanks, Joni

A cookie recipe. That involves peanut butter (immediate PLUS right there) and only three ingredients, all of which I have on hand. Sounds amazing. And dangerous. Very. Dangerous.

I read your post and went right downstairs to make them. Delicious!!! Thank you! I was so happy that I would also be able to give them to my niece who's spending the night tonight (who has a gluten allergy).

I'll be whipping these up for a baby blessing luncheon on Sunday! I think I'll do a variety like you have here!

Thanks!

we make these all the time, and they're easily vegan with an egg substitute. so good.
p.s. stone soup was one of my favorite books as a child.

I love the sounds of '3 ingredients'.
