Take three ingredients, and 20 minutes to whip-up these soft and crumbly Peanut Butter Cookies.  They’re a treat on your time, and taste-buds.


  • 1 cup (smooth) all natural peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup of sugar
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 325F.

Mix all the ingredients together, and then place spoonfuls of the batter on a greased baking sheet.   Press them crosswise with a fork to get the professional checkerboard look.

Bake 12 minutes, until brown around the edges.

Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes.
