3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies ~ Makes 10
Ready in under 30 minutes

Cookies don't get much easier than this.
Just three ingredients, a few minutes in the oven, and you have a delicious batch of peanut butter cookies.

Ingredients
1 egg, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the egg, sugar, and peanut butter in a bowl and mix until smooth. Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls.
Place the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Flatten each gently with a fork then turn the fork 90 degrees and flatten again to make a criss-cross mark.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes then remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

Does it work to push a Hershey's Kiss or some chocolate chips into the dough of each cookie before baking?
Um, asking for a friend...
Yes. The recipe I have calls for 1 c. each sugar, PB and chocolate chips, plus 1 egg. They are a bit fragile.

Put them on after you take the cookies out of the oven. We use the flat melting wafers on ours- easier to stack. I recently taught my GD to make these. She's been making them every week since!
