Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Peanut Butter Day!

Yep, it’s actually a holiday.  I figured we could celebrate by sharing one of my family’s favorite peanut butter cookie recipes.  I guess I could’ve shared my chicken satay recipe but we’ll save that for another day.

It’s a favorite because 1) we ALWAYS have peanut butter in the pantry and 2) the recipe is super easy.


  • 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth, your preference)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Mix peanut butter, sugar and egg until smooth. 
3. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto lightly greased OR nonstick baking sheet. 
4.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 6 - 8 minutes
5.  Let cool completely.

Oh, if you are allergic to peanut butter you can substitute cashew butter.  
Does your family like peanut butter cookies?

Do you have a tried and true favorite recipe using peanut butter?

Peanut butter cookies are wonderful. I would have to make a double batch these wouldn't last long around my house.

This totally brings me back to my childhood. My grandma would make cookies like this all the time and I loved it. I cannot wait to try this again.

This is the only recipe I use when I make peanut butter cookies. I've been making them for years and my kids and now my grandkids love when I make them. I like that they are so easy to make.

The nut butter is fine, but I need to switch out the sugar. Gotta find a replacement for this awesome cookie!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house
