Sunday was a relaxing day for me. After spending two days at the BlogHer Food conference in Austin (post on conference coming soon!) I was truly exhausted and just wanted to veg out.
Then I opened my swag bag and saw the organic sugar from Wholesome Sweeteners in there. And my sweet tooth shouted so off I went to make something to settle her down.
This recipe for three-ingredient peanut butter cookies was in our internal work newsletter. It’s apparently been around for ages but I had never seen it. The minute I saw it I knew I wanted to make this recipe. The fewer ingredients for me the better I like it.
This 3-ingredient peanut butter cookie is now on my short list of sweets to make when I don’t want a whole lot of something but want it quick. These definitely had a sweet kick to them but they were scrumptious. They don’t have the traditional feel of a sugar cookie but they’ll satisfy your craving.
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar or regular white sugar, plus extra for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop cookie dough on a cookie sheet placed about an inch apart. You will need two cookie sheets for this recipe.
Add about 2 Tbsp of sugar to a small bowl. Dip a fork in the sugar then press the fork into the cookie dough to spread it. Repeat to make a crisscross pattern.
Place in the oven and bake for 8-11 minutes. The cookies will need to cool on the cookie sheet to set. I would leave them there for 10-15 minutes. Don’t be alarmed – they may seem as they are not ready but they will set.
Makes around 18 cookies.
Note: I use the OXO Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop. It’s my favorite scoop and I always use it when baking cookies or cupcakes. (affiliate link)
