A delight in your mouth, a melting temptation. Peanut Butter Cookies are good for a party or just to give to your friends and family. A really easy recipe to follow with just 3 ingredients.


  • 250ml peanut butter (1 cup)
  • 250ml sugar (1 cup)
  • 1 egg


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190oC/375oF and prepare and line a baking tray.

    Put the peanut butter and sugar into a bowl and mix. In a separate bowl whisk the egg. Put the egg in the peanut butter mixture and beat together.
  • STEP 3
    Place the mixture in balls and press them down on the baking tray. Make sure they have enough room apart for them to spread in the oven.
  • STEP 4
    Insert the peanut butter cookies in the oven for 15 minutes. Take them out when they have a soft middle. They do not need to be hard! Let them cool on a baking tray until hard. Serve them straight away or save them for another day.
