Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

Four ingredients, folks. Yep, these are the easiest peanut butter cookies ever and pretty tasty to boot! This is also a great one to include the kiddies on. Simple ingredients, very little clean up and FUN! Kids love to crack eggs and get their hands dirty.

You will need:



  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

If you are like me in the kitchen, you don’t like to get your hands icky. I can’t stand handling raw meat, eggs or oily products barehanded, so I keep a box of thin, disposable gloves in the kitchen. If you are doing this with kiddos, then I recommend you pull some out and all don a pair. Set out all your ingredients and then add to medium sized bowl. Get your hands in there and start squeezing. Mix batter together until you can create one large ball of dough. Roll balls of dough to the size of a ping pong ball or smaller.

Once they are all rolled, pull off your gloves and throw away. Pull out a cookie sheet and line it with foil. Put each ball on ungreased sheet and push down in the center with a fork. Then – to create that familiar criss-cross pattern – push once more diagonally over last mark.

Continue on until you run out of dough. Put the first sheet in the oven and check after 8 mins. I like mine to be more moist instead of crumbly, so I pull them out early. But they should be completely done by 12 mins. Continue to check for softness and pull out as soon as the edges brown.
