I’ve been making these simple Peanut Butter cookies for years, because:
1) They only require four ingredients
2) They taste like the “regular” Peanut Butter Cookie recipe
3) They’re all ingredients I almost ALWAYS have on hand. That means I know I can always whip up a batch if I need a fast, easy treat.
I recently made these into bite-sized treats so I could have a taste of dessert with only 33 calories, but you could make them any size you’d like! You could also add mini chocolate chips or peanuts for some variety.
Easiest Ever Peanut Butter Cookies
1 Cup Peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until creamed together. For small cookies, place one teaspoon batter onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
If you want the identifiable crisscross pattern, dip a fork in granulated sugar and press lightly in each direction.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 10 minutes, then place on cooling rack to cool completely.
Yield: 60 mini cookies
I popped them into a Ziplock bag and put them in the freezer. When I’m ready for a treat, I put one in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Add a glass of milk to these treats and you have a delicious snack or dessert!
Is this old recipe in your files? If not, I hope you’ll give them a try! They’re as delicious as they are simple!
