Combine all ingredients until mixed. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten each ball with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 5-7 minutes then place on wire rack.
Added soy free/dairy free chocolate chips for the ultimate easy cookie

I made these with splenda brown sugar so they are gluten free (No Flour) and sugar free I also let them cook for 11 min's very good!
ceggers August 28, 2011 REVIEW:
I really like these cookies. In my opinion they should bake for about - 12 minutes and be left on the cookie sheet until they've cooled completely. This keeps them from falling apart and seeming raw. I too, enjoy adding chocolate chips to the mix. Reminds me of Reese's Peanut Butter cups! They're also wonderful for people who require a gluten free diet as no flour is needed.

Greetings. I was craving peanut butter cookies and did not have any baking soda. I was way too lazy to go to the store. So..I came to this site. :) I am so glad I did. All these years and I never knew that I could do this. My kids loved them!! Thank you!!
MamaJudy October 19, 2010 REVIEW:
I have been making these cookies for 50 yrs....here's some hints & ideas:
Mix PB with sugar first and after you've added the egg & mixed, let it set for 15 minutes..no grainiess
I usually flatten the cookies by cross hatching them using a fork dipped in sugar.
I make thes without cross hatching them and after they have cooled drizzle the tops with chocolate chips that have been melted in the micowave with a tsp. of butter..sometimes I even dip them in this chocolate.
Rosie June 22, 2010 REVIEW:
I liked the cookies but they were still raw when they came out of the oven!
Susie December 27, 2009 REVIEW:
I was quite skeptical about this recipe considering there were just 3 ingredients needed, but I'm a believer now! They are really, really good. I will never go back to the more complicated peanut butter cookie recipes because there is no point. After the first batch I decided to see how they would taste using a teaspoon of vanilla and I think it made them even better (if possible). Highly recommend!
Guest Foodie September 5, 2009 COMMENT: These are perfect to use with a Cookie Press. Choose your favorite shape, press onto a baking stone, bake and enjoy!

These Cookies were really good and i made them in a short time before my mom had got home.
P.S. these cookies are so easy to make i made them and i am only 12
Jaie August 20, 2008 REVIEW:
This was super easy, and the recipe came together fast. Another commenter noted that the cookies could be a little grainy, so I whipped up a batch of superfine sugar (toss it in the blender and buzz it until fine, it measures the same as regular granulated). I used a #60 disher to make 1-inch balls, tossed in suger to reduce sticking and flattened with the bottom of a jelly jar. These cookies produced lots of OMGs accompanied by eyes riolling into the back of heads. I have a new favorite.
Laura August 6, 2008 REVIEW:
Yummy! My daughter has Celiac Disease and this is the answer for cookies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guest Foodie July 24, 2008 REVIEW:
very soft, almost creamy middle when hot.
Cooked 10 minutes, next time I'll shoot for 11 or 12..
mine were grainy, but next time i'll try mixing the sugar & pb together before adding the egg.
Overall, good cookie for the effort!
femme July 3, 2008 REVIEW:
I really like these cookies. They reminded me of a cross between the peanut butter in Reese's cups and a pb cookie. Next time I will add chocolate chips and maybe some nuts. They are a bit too soft sometimes but I can't stand crunchy cookies so they are perfect for me.
erin June 16, 2008 REVIEW:
These cookies are really tasty and super easy! I used reduced fat peanut butter, and they still tasted great!

txartistgirl March 31, 2008 REVIEW:
I have to say that I was very leary about trying the recipe because of it only having 3 ingrediants but laziness prevailed and I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did. The whole process took about 15 minutes and the cookies rocked! I had been craving some PB cookies for awhile and these were so Delicious and chewy not grainy at all, thanks for posting this recipe I will definatly make these again.
amanda March 30, 2008 REVIEW:
These were wonderful! You do have to mix the peanut butter and the sugar together first or you will get grainy cookies. Simple,easy and YUMMY!
penandra February 21, 2008 REVIEW:
These are so amazingly simple, how can they be with only 3 ingredients! But they are delicious. I made the with only creamy PB, but added mini choco chips. I love the suggestion for almond butter, and will stop on the way home and pick some up so that I can try that! I used two forks for flattening and kept them in a glass of ice water so that they didn't stick to the cookie. Also, they freeze well UNBAKED and then I take out as wanted and bake a few in my convection oven . . . warm cookies right from the oven AND portion control since I don't have 3 dozen baked cookies in the house! ;-)

twttybrd October 12, 2007 REVIEW:
My grandmother gave me this recipe when I was about 10 yrs old. That was 35 yrs ago and she had used it her whole life. I lost it and just found it again. All i kept thinking is that it had to be more than those three ing. but I was wrong. Thank-You so much for bringing t back to me.
Catie October 12, 2007 COMMENT: These cookies are great for a dibetic-just substitute Splenda for the sugar. No need to spend all that money on "sugar-free cookies" from the store.
Guest Foodie September 11, 2007 COMMENT: Just got done making these cookies. they were actually pretty good. very chewy! i will be making more of these some time soon. thanks
meme September 8, 2007 COMMENT: This recipe is from a government progam called "WIC" It was given to low-income families who could not afford to buy cookies. So they created this recipe because everyone has sugar, peanut butter and eggs in their pantry!
CDKitchen Staff Reply: WIC was started in 1972, and there are references to this type of recipe dating farther back than that - so WIC may have promoted this recipe, but we don't think they actually came up with it.
Guest Foodie June 15, 2007 REVIEW:
These cookies were great! I have a few tips: they make about 20-25 cook ies and you could use a meat tenderizer instead of a fork to smash them down

Guest Foodie November 11, 2006 REVIEW:
Wonderful Cookies!! Will use this recipe during the holidays!
Guest Foodie November 11, 2006 REVIEW:
My family has enjoyed these cookies for years, but with a variation: instead of pressing down the balls of dough on the cookie sheet, bake them in ball form and when removed from the oven, press a chocolate kiss in the center! Delicious combo of peanut butter and chocolate!
notboutme November 10, 2006 REVIEW:
My 17-year-old daughter started making these cookies with me when she was just a toddler. She's made them on her own since she was about 8. Perfect recipe to instill the joy of cooking in kids! We usually add 1/2 tsp of vanilla too. We also mix the peanut butter and sugar together first before adding the egg because it helps the batter stick together better.

Very very tasty and quick! The one thing I don't like is that it doesn't hold together, but can't have it all. This recipe is definately a keeper for busy people who don't want to compromise taste.

I just made these cookies for my nephew's birthday and they were a big hit. I could not believe how easy they were to make. My six year old made the second batch all by herself.
happymama September 21, 2006 REVIEW:
Just made this 3 ingredient recipe. The cookies are delicious. I'm surprised how much they look and taste like traditional recipe PB cookies. One note: they don't come off the cookie sheet like a flour based cookie...but not a big deal.

I just finished baking these cookies. Everyone loves them! I did use half crunchy and half smooth P.B. and I also added those new p.b/choc. swirl chips. They are soft and chewy and have a great flavor. They are a bit grainy because the sugar doesn't have much liquid to dissolve in. But still GREAT!
