Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

This recipe is great if you have kids wanting to “bake.”  I’ve used it for “food week” in my English play group at church.  It’s also good for those little munchkins who are not allowed to have milk or gluten–but not for nut allergies!

Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever


  • 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, doesn’t matter)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375.
  2. Stir them all together.  If you have kids helping, let them stir them together as best they can.  Then take over and stir vigorously for about a minute until it’s kind of fluffy.  If you need to make it easier to roll the dough, put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes, but sometimes I go ahead and just deal with the sticky fingers 🙂
  3. Roll the dough into 1 – 1 1/2 inch balls.  Roll the balls in sugar and place them on a non-greased cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly or put a small piece of chocolate on the top and press into it.  Be careful not to flatten them TOO much.  Bake for about 8 minutes.  This varies a lot, though, depending on if you refrigerated the dough and depending on your oven.
