Hi Bold Bakers!
If you’re like me, you’re also an avid peanut butter lover! One of my favorite ways to enjoy peanut butter’s nutty flavor and creamy texture is with some classic peanut butter cookies. Who doesn’t have happy childhood memories of making or eating peanut butter cookies, with that cross hatch patter on top, chewy texture and nutty sweet taste!
This recipe is truly as easy as 1, 2, 3, meaning you can whip up some happiness on any old day. This recipe is pretty much magic, made of just 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg. The 1 to 1 ratio really makes this recipe easy to remember.
This has become one of my go-to cookie recipes. After mixing all 3 ingredients together in a bowl, you roll the dough into balls and press them down and flatten them with the back of a fork. This gives them them the peanut butter cookie look we all know and love. They then bake for 15 minutes into impressively thick and decadent cookies. While this recipe really cuts down on prep time, none of the flavor or texture is lost in the process.
While these are perfection all on their own, I love the idea of these being filled with my creamy 2 Ingredient Ice Cream to make some homemade ice cream sandwiches. You could absolutely cover them in rich Chocolate Frosting, or dip them in melted chocolate! All you Bold Bakers must give these a try. I promise you, they will be an instant hit!
