Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter no sugar added
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Mix peanut butter, sugar, and egg together in a bowl using an electric mixer or spoon, until smooth and creamy. Roll mixture into small balls and arrange on a baking sheet; flatten each with the back of a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before moving to a cooling rack for a few more minutes.

Notes

Storage: When the cookies are completely cool, they can be stored in an airtight container or frozen.
Freezing Instructions: You can freeze the baked cookies for up to 3 months. Place them on a baking sheet in the freezer until they are completely frozen. Then transfer them to freezer bags or an airtight container. To reheat the frozen cookies, bake in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes, or until until warmed through.
Or, you can make the dough ahead of time, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and freeze. When ready to bake, allow the dough to thaw in the fridge until you’re ready to form and bake the cookies.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutions:
  • To make it vegan, substitute the egg for a flax egg, which is made by mixing together 1 tablespoon flaxseed with 2 tablespoons water and letting it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Instead of peanut butter, you could try these with other nut butters, but they may be more crumbly.
