Thank you Kristen Raney for bringing these amazing cookies to bible study on Monday night! They were slightly crispy on the edges, moist and chewy on the inside, and satisfied our sweet and salty treat cravings.
What seems impossible to believe is that these delicious homemade cookies only require 4 ingredients, and a fraction of the time needed to create most desserts.
This is my new favorite treat to make for unexpected guests, gluten-free friends, or when I’m just short on time.
Because they really are as magical as they sound.
FOUR INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 Egg
- coarsely ground Salt
- Combine ingredients in a medium sized bowl
- Shape into 12 balls and space evenly on a cookie sheet
- Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and slightly golden on the edges
- Sprinkle lightly with coarse salt
Note: Each batch makes a dozen cookies. Double, triple, quadruple, etc the recipe depending on the size of the crowd you are feeding. But if you need several dozen, I recommend only mixing a double batch at a time. Incorporating more than 2 cups of peanut butter into the other ingredients is no longer a simple, quick recipe.
