4 ingredient peanut butter cookies

4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Really. Just four ingredients. These cookies are delicate, very sweet and they have an intense peanut butter flavor. I personally think some peanut butter cookies can have a greasy, heavy taste, but these do not.

Here’s all you need:
1 C good peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 C sugar (next time I will try using ¾ C)
1 egg
1 t baking soda

Here’s what you do:
Mix the ingredients with a mixer. Scoop dough out in level spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Make them small – they are very delicate.

I like to make cross hatches with the tines of a fork which has been dipped in sugar…. Allow some of the grains of sugar to sprinkle down upon the cookie for extra goodness.

Bake 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Remove with metal spatula and allow to cool completely.  It’s that easy!
