3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Recommended Posts

For the first batch I followed the recipe to the t and the cookies came out very crumbly so the second time I mashed them together in my hands and thye came out slightly better. Thinking I didn't mix the dough enough, mom insisted it was finished. BUt the recipe said smooth and the dough wasn't.

I made the same cookies just the other day for a meeting.

You really do have to make sure that the dough is well mixed. Otherwise they should turn out very good.

Do try again, they are worth it. :D

What proportions did you use for the 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies? I make them all the time for DH and they always turn out. Now if only I could dig up my recipe...

1 cup of peanut butter

1 cup of sugar

1 egg.

The ones that I rolled in a ball and then put on the baking sheet and flatten with my palm came out great. But the ones I did following the recipe ( drop spoonful onto baking sheet) are crumbly.

I used that same recipe--and added a teaspoon of vanilla to it :P

I used a very small ice cream scoop to put them onto the cookie pan. Probably, the heat from your hands softened the peanut butter just enough to hold the ingredients together. I've never had that problem--the dough has always been more creamy.

I've rolled them into balls and then rolled them in sugar and flattened with my hand. Makes them nice and sparkly for the holiday. :P

I make the Kraft recipe that calls for only 1/2 cup of sugar...maybe that would make a difference to the consisency. The recipe calls for rolling it into balls and then flattening:

1 MIX together 1 cup Kraft Smooth Light Peanut Butter, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 egg.

2 ROLL into balls and flatten with fork on ungreased baking sheet.

if you used natural peanut butter, they don't work as well.

I make these cookies all the time. The best advice I can give is to make sure that all 3 ingredients are mixed evenly. Also, I only bake mine for about 8 minutes on 325. This makes them come out kind of chewy once they cool....sort of like the edges of a brownie...YUM!

The recipe I used is 1 c PB, 1 c sugar, 2 eggs (not 1). They turned out wonderfully, and they were a hit at the church potluck and at christmas dinner!

I made peanut butter cookies, used a regular recipie, substituted a 4 blend flour and added 1/2 tsp. xanatham gum to it, they turned out great. I also made chocolate chip cookies off the back of nestle chocolate chips and added 1/4 tsp. xanatham gum, they were great

I use brown sugar instead of white (1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg), add the teaspoon of vanilla and roll them into balls in my hands. I also put chocolate chips in them. Very good. I haven't yet come up with a cookie made with flour that I like but the Eagle milk and coconut (what IS the word for those cookies? senior moment :) ones are good.

I also put in 1 Tablespoon of baking soda. Mine always turn out great. Plus I add 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Monica

A whole TABLESPOON? Are you sure? I put in a 1/2 teaspoon and am happy with the results.

Dad loved both the cookies and the marshmellows, however I didn't realize he's watching calories. Oops. Oh well he's trying to figure out how to use a sugar substitute, which will suck because I'm allergic to artifical sugars.

The ones I rolled in a ball came out perfect, and I'm making some more for New Years with the regular sugar. I'm gonna use chunky peanut butter and try the vanilla. That's about all I'll change this time.

Think I could make almond cookies like this using almond butter? It has the same consistency, but it's almond.
