4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Yield: 18-20 cookies
- 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup sugar, plus extra as needed, optional
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
- Preheat oven to 350º F.
- In a large bowl or mixer beat peanut butter and sugar together.
- Once combined, beat in egg and vanilla extract and mix until fully incorporated.
- Using a tablespoon or just your hands, form dough into equal-sized balls and place on baking sheet.
Note: you can roll cookies in sugar if you prefer they be coated before baking.
- Use the tines of a fork to imprint a criss-cross shape on each cookie, then place in oven.
- Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom, but not fully set. (They will continue to set once out of the oven.)
- Remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes.
- Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy.
