When it comes to baking, I’m definitely not a pro, but I love everything about it. I’m definitely a dessert person through and through. When I first married my husband, I made a new dessert every week. There were pies, brownies, cakes, and cookies galore. It was his treat for working so hard.
4 years and a fair amount of pounds later, we tend to shy away from sweets. However, we still enjoy a simple cookie now and again.
I found this easy 3 ingredient peanut butter cookie on pinterest and fell in love. I felt luke I was the last to know, but I, annoyingly, still share it. It’s so simple and delicious. My mom’s peanut butter cookies were always too dry because my dad likes crunchy cookies. Now that I’m baking on my own terms, I found that a good, chewy cookie with a slightly crispy edge is my favorite.
I’m not the best recipe giver. Even though I love to bake and cook, I’m more willy-nilly in the kitchen. I go wih the flow and hope for the best usually. Martha Stewart has A LOT on me, and I’m not ashamed. I’m only a domestic demi-goddess, not full fledged.
Start by preheating oven to 350°
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or use a light spray. Sometimes, I don’t do either and my non-stick pans have no issue.
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Large Egg
Combine and mix ingredients in bowl until smooth. Spoon (ice cream scoop is a good size) balls of dough onto cookie sheet. Use fork to press and create criss-cross pattern into dough.
Bake 10-12 Minutes
This recipe makes me happy. Sometimes, I make mini cookies and press a dark chocolate chip into the center. It makes a mini peanut butter blossom so to speak.
I love an easy recipe I can stick to or make little adjustments with candy here or there. The kids can also help without my kitchen looking like a war zone. Enjoy!
