This is the easiest cookie recipe I have ever made! It has only 4 ingredients and is DELICIOUS with coffee. When I first found this recipe, I thought it was too simple to be good....boy, was I wrong.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 1 cup sugar (can use 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. preference)
  • 1 egg


  1. Mix all ingredients and drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet.
  2. Bake 375 for 10 minutes. Do not overcook. Cookies will become crisp as they cool.

This is definitely a 5 star recipe 1)it tastes great and 2) it's SO EASY. But I did have trouble with the 1st batch. These do not spread, and were not cooked at 10 minutes. For the 2nd batch, I flattened them out with a fork, and that worked perfectly!! Thanks so much!! Made for spring PAC,2010.
