Easy (Flourless!) Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Author: Sara Wells

Description

The EASIEST peanut butter cookie recipe turns out soft and flavorful.  Chocolate chips, optional!


Scale

Ingredients

1 cup peanut butter (we recommend standard Jiff or Skippy,  not natural style pb)
3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 large or extra large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt

optional: heaping 1/2 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
(I recommend dark or semi-sweet)

optional: 1/3 cup oats

optional: sugar for rolling


Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat peanut butter and brown sugar until smooth.  Add egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt.  Mix for about a minute.  Shape into balls, and if desired roll in sugar.  Flatten with a criss cross pattern with a fork, or simply flatten with the bottom of a glass.  If you’d like to add Oatmeal Chocolate Chip PB Cookies, add chocolate chips and oats. Bake for 8-9 minutes, don’t over-bake, and let them sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Makes 18-20 cookies.
