The Best Three-Ingredient Cookies aka Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes: 14 cookies
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter, preferably smooth and made with palm oil (not natural and not classic with the hydrogenated oils)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, sugar and egg. Mix until smooth.(Done in 17 seconds!)
  3. Drop Ping Pong size balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet (we use a Zeroll #40 scoop). Make criss cross with fork. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake! These cookies are best when they are still soft and just barely brown on the bottoms and along the edges.
  4. Cool pans on racks. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
