Easy as 1, 2, 3....

A little while ago I was flipping through my sisters in laws gluten free cook book. I came a crossed a peanut butter cookie recipe that was so easy consisting only of 3 ingredients: peanut butter, sugar, and an egg. I just had to try it! It was so nice making something without a lot of clean up, but they just seemed too good to be true. I thought there was no way something so easy could be good. But I was very very wrong! They were very yummy, in fact, they tasted just like any other peanut butter cookie I had ever had. If I tried them at a party there was no way I would think that they only had 3 ingredients. I don't think I will ever use a different peanut butter cookie recipe again because they were so easy, delicious, and moist. Now, if anyone has a peanut butter cookie recipe that is just to die for I would love to hear it! But until I find one that is worth all the effort, I will stick to these easy as 1, 2,3 peanut butter cookies.
And, for an added plus for our Celiac friends, they are gluten free!

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

  2. Carly,
    Greetings from Chicago. I made these last night -- AMAZING!!! I was skeptical based on the premise -- if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. How could something with so few ingredients and so quick to make be so amazingly good? I'm making a double batch tonight to give to friend tomorrow for her birthday. I think I've already passed this recipe along to a dozen people at work. The recipe is now locked into my brain. 1-1-1-400-8-10.
    Best regards,
