These are the fastest and easiest peanut butter cookies out there. They bake up in just a few minutes – make sure not to over bake these cookies. They taste best when they are still soft and barely beginning to brown on the bottoms.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine peanut butter, sugar, and egg in a mixing bowl. Stir until smooth and combined.
  3. Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls. Arrange on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 6-8 minutes, or until the bottoms of the cookies are just beginning to brown.
