The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever - 3 Ingred.

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 12 mins

A cookie recipe with three ingredients...this is my kind of cookie! A fast and easy snack that can be embellished if desired with, for example, chocolate chips. For a more chewy cookie, drop the pan straight from the oven on the countertop (not too high!) to force the air bubbles out of the cookie.


  1. Combine ingredients and mix well.
  2. Roll into 1" balls and flatten in the traditional criss-cross pattern with a fork.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

I have been looking for gluten-free cookie recipes for a friend and this fit the bill perfectly. These were good enough to make anytime, not just when needing gluten-free. I must have made my cookies slightly larger than intended as I only got 22. Followed the recipe exactly and baked on parchment paper for 11 minutes. I used extra crunchy Skippy. Next time I'm going to try adding a few chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe! - Oct 1, 2009. Update: Made these again - a double batch this time - and ended up with 53 (or so); they were smaller so baked for 9 minutes, which was sufficient for my taste. I did add some mini-chocolate chips to some of them, though I think I prefer them plain, strangely enough! lol Thanks again for posting!

I do this with a cup of Splenda instead of the real sugar. Works perfectly and I can have this treat. My 14 year old DS loves them.

I made these, but I used natural peanut butter. It didn't have a nice texture to them, they were very crumbly. They might be better if regular chunky peanut butter is used.
