Our Easiest (Ever!) Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe: Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

There are few things quite as satisfying as a peanut butter cookie. A little bit sweet, a little bit salty, every bite transports you back to childhood. We can still see our grandmothers pulling the hot cookies out of the oven, pressing the criss-cross patterns on the top with the tines of a fork. Peanut butter cookies are a delicious treat. We’re partial to a plate of them after school or after work with a tall glas of cold milk. When they are homemade and fresh out of the oven, peanut butter cookies taste even better. With this recipe, you're only four ingredients and 35 minutes away from biting into warm, comforting peanut butter cookies. All you need to bake these goodies are 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Few cookie recipes are easier than that, and most people already have all of the ingredients on hand in the cabinets or in the refrigerator. These kitchen basics become a memorable sweet treat in no time at all. We love how sweet and nostalgic they are, since they call up treasured memories of childhood. Plus, they don't contain any flour, so gluten-free holiday guests will also be able to enjoy them. We love a gluten-free recipe, and we also love cookies that you can customize. Feel free to add in some chocolate chips for an extra treat. Or try peanut butter chips for double the peanut butter goodness. You won't be sorry you baked up a batch of these chewy peanut butter cookies (in fact, you may need to bake another, because these cookies disappear quickly!). Definitely be sure to ask about allergies if you’re planning to bake some for friends or family, but if you get the all clear, put them in a pretty tin and share them with those you love.
