Easy Peasy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Thanksgiving is over and that means you deserve a break from cooking and baking.

These are the easiest cookies to make ever.  You'll barely have to move.  

When I saw the recipe, I did a double-take, because seriously, what kind of cookie would turn out well with only 3 ingredients?  These cookies.  Not only are these good, they're daaang good.  I can't go to a party empty-handed, so I whipped these up real quick and 20 minutes later I had little bites of heaven.  The outside is crisp and the inside is chewy. The only thing I would change next time is reducing the sugar.  Not that they were too sweet, but I think I could've reduced it a little bit.  These babies are delicious.  I guess it's true that simple is better.

Easy Peasy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, white sugar and egg. Mix until smooth.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes. Do not overbake! These cookies are best when they are still soft and just barely brown on the bottoms.
