Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, white sugar and egg. Mix until smooth.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes. Do not overbake! These cookies are best when they are still soft and just barely brown on the bottoms.

I read the reviews for this recipe before I made them. I figured with so little ingredients try them and if they aren't good I am not out too much. I rolled them into large walnut shaped balls and pressed a fork with sugar in a crosscut pattern. I baked them for almost 15 minutes and they did not burn. I asked Husband to rate them. For him it was a definite 10. I then proceeded to ask each our our four sons who also gave it a 10. After the first batch I decided to flatten them more and sprinkle with sugar. They cooked much quicker. I have found with this cookie cook them till the top turns slightly white. let them cool for 5 minutes then transfer to plate or platter. Ours made 20 cookies. I ended up making another batch a little later in the evening and made a BIG cookie with chocolate chips pressed into the cookie. It made 1 pizza pan sized cookie. Thanks for the great and easy Recipe. I will definitely make this one again.

this is a very tasty cookie! i've made a change when i bake it, though. try adding 1 tsp of baking soda. this makes it a little lighter.

Great cookies! I added a splash of vanilla, a small pinch of baking soda and a little salt and they turned out delicious. Without the additions, they tasted a little off. With the baking soda, the cookies really spread out! I also baked them for a total of 12 minutes this time around, and found that I liked them better this way.
