Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Updated on June 10, 2018

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is so amazingly simple: only 3 ingredients! Best of all, you more than likely have these ingredients on hand.

What you need:

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

extra sugar for coating

Cream the peanut butter and sugar together. When fluffy, add the egg and mix thoroughly. The mixture may be a little wet and soft, so handle with care. Scoop some dough and roll into a small ball. Roll in sugar and place on cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten slightly. Bake at 350 F for 8 - 10 minutes, depending on the oven. Check frequently as the bottoms can burn easily. The total number of cookies will depend on how large or small you make them. Just be forewarned that these will disappear before they are completely cooled on the cookie rack!

Enjoy!

Note:

1. Try mixing the peanut butter: use 1/2 cup organic peanuts-only-butter and 1/2 cup regular peanut butter. The taste of the cookie is much more aromatic and it is less sweet.

2. Double the recipe because they won't last.

3. Store in an air tight container (if you have any left) to retain freshness.

4.  Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, but decrease the sugar by half.

      Oliversmum - Hi! I buy PB when it's on sale and sometimes I buy it at the bulk food store. It can be expensive here too, but these cookies are worth the purchase. The best combination is 1/2 organic PB and 1/2 commercial brand. The flavor is peanutty with the organic. Enjoy! :)

      Beth100. Hi. Wow this is a great Recipe using Peanut Butter.

      No flour, that's even better.

      They look beautiful and easy to make. This recipe is going into my recipe book right now.

      Peanut Butter sounds like it is a reasonable price over there. Here it could cost three to four dollars, depending on the brand.

      Thank you so much for sharing this mouth watering Biscuit Recipe. :) :)
