Quick peanut butter cookies

Quick peanut butter cookies

Community Classics .
Edited on Sep 17, 2007

I got this from a friend and these are the most simple peanut butter cookies my kids & I have ever made. There are only 3 ingredients believe it or not and they taste great. Fun & easy for kids.


1cup of creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
(Optional): 1/2 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 350
add all ingredients and mix till smooth.
Take a small or large spoon size scoop of dough and roll in to ball and place on cookie sheet about 2 fingers apart (for kids ). Press down each ball with fork to make an x design then place in oven for 10 to 12 min. Takes about 20 min.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
