4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies!

Peanut Butter Cookies

One of my goals in 2014 is to share with you guys many of my basic “go to” recipes that everybody loves, but never seem to make it to the blog! In the passed month I’ve been asked several times for a good peanut butter cookie recipe, so I knew these little guys needed to make an appearance! After all everybody needs a good peanut butter cookie in their arsenal. These cookies are crazy easy, like 4 ingredient easy!

If your just craving something sweet and quick, or making the kids a little after school snack – these will do the trick! Unlike many peanut butter cookies that have a crunch, these guys are pretty soft and well yummy!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Here’s what your going to need:

1 Cup Jif Peanut Butter
1 Large Egg
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar

Makes approx. 15 3in cookies.

Note: This is a small recipe for quick snacking! If you need more then 1.5 Dozen cookies the recipe will double very nicely.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl an electric mixer, mix together peanut butter and egg. Add in granulated and powdered sugar, mix until fully combined. The dough may seem a little “dry” but it comes together great.

Step 2: Scoop or roll dough out into 1.5in balls on you parchment lined baking sheet. I like to use a well rounded TBS full and tap or scrap it out with a tiny spatula, then give them each a quick roll.

Step 3: Press cookies down with a fork.

Step 4: Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes. I bake mine at nine, but I’m a burn-a-phob! Carefully lift the parchment paper off the pan and slide it to a cooling rack to cool.

  6. I just made these, had a hankering for PB cookies and found this on Pinterest. I only had organic PB. The dough was dry and crumbly (Jif must have more emulsifiers in it.). It did compress into balls, but crumbled when pressed with a fork. I added more PB, it helped a bit. Waiting for them to cool now. (o: Okay, couldn’t wait… Pretty yummy. Thanks for sharing.
