I've heard rave reviews about three-ingredient cookies in the past, how tasty and simple they are--and it's all true.
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (smooth is okay too, but I like crunchy better)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until smooth. Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto a baking sheet, two inches apart.* Flatten the cookies slightly.
Bake 8-10 minutes, until dry on top and nearly set. Allow to cool on the sheet for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
*My recipe specifies an ungreased sheet, but I found they stuck very badly. They also sagged into the spaces in my wire rack, leaving dimpled bottoms. Next time I intend to bake these on foil-lined sheets so I can lift the foil off to cool them all at once and avoid the misshapen bottoms.
