Yes its true you can make peanut butter cookies with just 3 ingredients. No flour needed just peanut butter, sugar and an egg.

 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

I do like to add a bit of vanilla to mine but I promise they work and taste just as good with out the vanilla so I keep it optional.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter CookiesThese cookies are crisp on the outside with a yummy soft chewy center.


The recipe does make a good amount of cookies depending on how big or small you make them.

I made mine just a bit smaller than any other kind of cookie.These cookies are so handy to make, they are so easy and it only takes like 2 minutes to prepare the dough.
