The following recipe for Super Simple Peanut Butter Cookies is from reader Cathy D.  She notes: “The egg helps hold the dough together. Don’t skip it, or you’ll have crumbly mess.”

This recipe makes one dozen cookies.

  • 1 cup peanut butter. Typical commercial peanut butter brands (like Skippy or Jif) work better than the “natural/organic” brands.
  • 1 cup of white sugar.
  • 1 egg
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Mix peanut butter, white sugar, and egg in a medium bowl until smooth.
  4. Roll mixture into 1-inch dough balls and place 1.5 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet
  5. Flatten each dough ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are just barely brown on the bottoms, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Cool on the baking sheets briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Ootionlly, sprinkle with sugar or powdered sugar.

Serve warm or cold. With milk, of course!


If you’d like, the uncooked dough balls can be frozen.  Thaw before baking.
