Get ready for the easiest cookie recipe ever! These delicious peanut butter cookies require only three ingredients: peanut butter, sugar, and one egg. That's it! It almost sounds too good to be true until you give it a try for yourself.
You can use your favorite brand of peanut butter, and select either creamy or chunky. Since there are variations in texture from brand to brand, sometimes the cookie dough can be a bit soft and hard to roll. No problem! If the dough is soft, simply refrigerate it until it's firm enough to roll.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar, plus additional for decoration
1 large egg
Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, sugar, and egg. Stir until smooth and creamy.
Roll into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Place a small amount of sugar on a small plate. Dip a fork in the sugar and the press into each peanut butter cookie, flattening it and making a cross-hatch pattern. Dip the fork back in the sugar between each cookie.
Bake in the preheated oven until just golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
Continue cooling completely on a wire rack. Then, enjoy!
How do you make peanut butter cookies taste better?
Peanut butter cookies should taste like peanuts! The ratio of peanut butter to the other ingredients in the recipe will ensure that the peanut flavor shines in every bite. That is what makes this three-ingredient version so delicious.
Which ingredients make these cookies moist and tender?
In this case, it is the peanut butter and the egg that make the cookies so moist and tender. The egg not only acts as a binder for the cookies, but it also adds moisture.
How do you make peanut butter cookies chewy from scratch?
If you are making peanut butter cookies from scratch and prefer a chewier cookie, the key is to slightly under-bake the cookies. Then ,when they come out of the oven, leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes to gently finish off the baking process. If you prefer a crispier cookie, simply bake a little longer until they are a deeper golden brown.
Why are my peanut butter cookies falling apart?
If your cookies are falling apart, first double-check the measurements and directions and make sure you followed everything exactly. Did you thoroughly incorporated the ingredients? If you find the cookies are difficult to roll, try refrigerating the dough for at least 1 hour. This will firm up the dough and make it easier to handle.
