Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies





These cookies were a childhood favorite of mine. My mom and I would make them whenever we wanted a homemade dessert but didn't feel like spending hours in the kitchen. They have only four ingredients, take about 5 minutes to prepare (8 minutes to bake), and taste amazing. It's definitely the easiest dessert I've ever made and one of the most delicious.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool.

Valerie I'm all buzzed out on the glorious summer weather we had and am just going to bed...these cookies look divine and I kinda feel like turning on the oven (despite the heat - yay!) to bake some right now!! I think this is going to be breakfast in a few short hours. YUM!!

I can't believe how simple these are! I have had bad luck making pb cookies... and they're Ryan's favorite! Seriously, as soon as we run out of the mini cupcakes that we made last night, I am getting right on this recipe. :)

Josie said...

Um, perfection. And so easy to make! Plus, gluten-free, which means my sister and I can have a little par-tay eating these together.
