KRAFT saves the day! I found this recipe on the back of the Kraft Peanut Butter jar, tried it yesterday and now I’m hooked. It has only 3 ingredients, and WOW, are these ever good and oh so EASY!!! Honest, you have got to try this!
Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat oven to 325. Then mix:
1 Cup Smooth (Light) Peanut Butter – I have since made a batch with regular Smooth P.B. in place of Light, and it worked equally as well
1/2 Cup Sugar
and 1 Egg
Mix until well blended. Roll into about 24 balls, and flatten onto ungreased cookie sheets (I like to use the silicone lined ones for baking) and then flatten cookies with a fork.
Bake at 325 for about 10 minutes, being careful not to overbake!
Thank you so much for this recipe!!! My 4 year old son has been begging me to make peanut butter cookies and this is so easy he will be able to help mommy!!! Love your site!!
Thanks for your blog and the recipe…great stuff…enjoy the day!! Peace, Hope
Hi there! I make these all the time, however I usually only use 1/3 cup sugar (still taste just as great) and I throw in chocolate chips. Sometimes I also throw in a bit of oatmeal to make them a bit heartier. 🙂
I have had this recipe for years although mine called for 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract. I love to make these and when they come out of the oven put a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle (wrapper removed of course).
These are my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. They are soft and crunchy at the same time. YUMMY!!!!
these also work with crunchy peanut butter!
acyually i like the crunch ones better!
but you have to eat them freshly baked for the best taste!!!!!
Delicious! They didn’t last more than 12 hours! I put a dollop of raspberry jam (jelly) in a hole in the top for some yummy PB&J. For my next batch I’m going to make Nutella sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe!!!
Wow, this sounds too good to be true. I can’t wait to give this a try.
Thanks for the recipe.
Stuart just sent me the link to this…gonna have to try them since they are gluten free!
My husband added a 1/3 or a cup whipped fresh cream and WOW now thats good stuff… he was also able to make more.
Thanks for the idea
Thanks for the awesome recipe! These are perfect to make for me and my roommates… and cheap to 😛
Hi ,I make these all the time ,being diabetic I use splenda ,my recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar ,your recipe calls for 1/2 cup.I am going to try it with the 1/2 cup next time and maybe some chocolate chips.. love your site . Joyce:).
OMG! So I have tried two recipes off here tonight alone- The Easy Banana Muffins and this one… They are both Excellent! These cookies were the easiest thing I have ever made and so yummy!
I was hoping you would have a recipe for almond butter cookies, sadly you don’t. Now there’s an idea for a new cookie recipe for you,LOL.Hope to see one from you soon, because I have 1/2 a jar of almond butter to use up (large jar that I buy at Costco)and I don’t know how else to use it, other than in a sandwich or as a spread. Please help!
I have to agree with OMG!…
Sometimes in life, SIMPLE is BEST!
Simplest recipe, BEST Cookies!
BTW, my wife found this website & made the cookies. All I did was EAT THEM UP and comment on my reply.
(Where no one can cook right!)
Wow..no margarine or butter or baking powder, just PB, sugar and an egg? Thats all? And it comes out crunchy?
Ive just finished making these and the easy banana muffins. Both taste awesome! The cookies took about 3 mins to get onto the tray and came out perfect 🙂 I’ve already eaten 2 banana muffins hehe
i went to make peanut butter cookies to find out that i had a different jar… and it has a smoothie recipe on it instead so i found this and i was so happy 🙂 thank you!
These cookies are the bomb Dot com.
My 68 yr old husband and I can’t stop eating them…making another batch.
I can’t believe there is only 3 ingredients…go figure.
LOVED these! So easy to make! I whipped up a batch for my boys before they got home from school today, they were very pleasantly surprised! Thank you!
I’m 14 and I was bored so I made these. Waiting to taste them soon
