C is for Cookie … This post is brought to you by the letter C and is for every Cookie Monster that needs a quick fix.
3-ingredient peanut butter cookies are made out of peanut butter, sugar, and eggs. That is it. I haven’t tried it, but for those with nut allergies, you might be able to try this with a seed or soy butter.
I used the recipe by All Recipes but I knew when I read it that I would find it too sweet so I only used 3/4 cup of sugar. Watch the baking time too; I had to keep them in the oven for double the written time. They are meant to be a soft cookie when they came out but they were uncooked at their recommended timing.
I found that I liked these cookies better a couple days later after they got a little crunch. Despite the decrease in sugar, I still found it a little too sweet for me.
It is still a good recipe to try through because it is easy to put together (great supervised activity for children) and you get cookies to eat in less than an hour (that includes finding ingredients, mixing, cooking, and cooling).
