Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies


Working full time has given me a new appreciation for super quick and easy recipes.  Most of my baking is done on the weekends now, but every now and then I want something baked fresh on a weeknight.  On those occasions, the fewer the ingredients, the better.  If it involves just a few short steps, even better.  This recipe fits the bill.  It bakes up a small batch of soft, delicious peanut buttery cookies in just a few minutes and involves only 3 or 4 ingredients.

Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies, small batch - around 8 cookies, adapted from I ate Brisbane
1/2 Cup Jif Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter (non-refrigerated kind)
1/4 C + 2 Tbl granulated sugar
~ 1/2 large egg, room temp
A few chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Put all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until combined.  Make scant Tablespoon dough balls (use a Tablespoon cookie scoop and don't quite fill it all the way).  Press a few chocolate chips into the top of each cookie.  Bake 13 - 17 minutes.

Yum - easy and tasty. Can't get much better than that! You have a minor math error in the ingredients, though. 5/8 cup should be 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons rather than 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons.

Chris - oh my goodness, you're so right! Thanks for catching that one. I've updated the recipe on this post.
