3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceI used to make these in college because they were quick and cheap.  My friend’s grandmother showed me how and now I’ll show you!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceGrab equal parts peanut butter and sugar, then 1 egg for each cup of peanut butter & sugar.  For a regular-sized batch of about 20 cookies, I used 1 cup each of peanut butter and sugar, and 1 egg.  If you know you’ll have a bunch of hungry peanut-butter-lovers, definitely make a double batch!

Combine all ingredients, then scoop out about a tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball, and place it on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake for about 12 minutes in a preheated 350° oven.  Allow to cool for a few minutes, then EAT!!
