Magic Peanut Butter Cookies

3 ingredients. Gluten-free. Easy to remember recipe. Everyday ingredients.

Now that's my kind of cookie.

I call these Magic Peanut Butter Cookies because frankly, I have no idea how they work. They call for three ingredients:

1 Cup of Peanut Butter
1 Cup of Sugar

1 Egg

This basic recipe yields about 2 dozen, but doubling and tripling is easy. Making a double batch? Use 2 Cups of each, and 2 eggs. Tripling? Use 3 cups of each, and 3 eggs. It's a no-brainer.

What isn't a no-brainer is how these sweet things taste exactly like the recipe that requires flour, baking soda, baking powder, etc. I can't tell a difference in taste or texture.

8 minutes, 350 degrees.



  1. Wow - I don't need to bake gluten-free but am making these anyway because they are so easy and look yummy! I'd like one with my morning coffee, please. Thanks for sharing.

  2. YUM! This would fit perfectly into my non-baking baking repertoire!

  3. I make these ALL the time and my family just LOVES them.. my grandpa used to make them and they remind me of him! In fact, I just took a batch out of the freezer (since I always triple the recipe and freeze!)

  4. When I found the recipe for these last year and made them for the first time, I thought they were fantastic, and wondered why anyone ever made peanut butter cookies the other way. These are delicious. I always double or triple the recipe and freeze the rest. Hey, I figure that if you can't bake cookies with only three ingredients without screwing them up, get out of the kitchen. You are a danger to yourself and others, lol!

  5. I make these too, and you can also do them with a Hershey kiss pressed down on top. Yummy and so fast and easy.
