Easy Peanut Butter Cookies: Only 3 Ingredients

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies: Only 3 Ingredients

Hi everybody :)
Sorry about not posting sooner, I been really busy packing up my daughter stuff in her apartment.  She is taking her finals this week,  the semester is almost over!  Next stop....  GRADUATION! Yipee!!! Then, I'll be back home :) These cookies below are ones she loves to bake because they are soooo easy, but since she still can't walk yet; she ask me to bake them for her. They are peanut butter cookies with just three ingredients and contains no flour!  Super easy right? I know. So, let get it started.

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter (I used Jif Creamy)
1 cup sugar (I used 1 part granulated and 1 part brown sugar)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional 

Preheat oven to 350 degree. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
Combine all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl until well blended.  
Drop cookie dough by tablespoonful onto prepared sheet. Use tines of a fork dipped in sugar to make a crisscross pattern on top of each cookies if desired.

Bake until golden brown, about 12 - 15 minutes. Yield: 2 dozen.

What I Did and/or Think:
Well, I did make a few changes to the three ingredients formula by adding brown sugar for a more chewier texture  and and vanilla. The changes I made are in Bold, Italic, and Purple
For Easy Peanut Butter Blossom version: Shape the dough into 3/4" ball before baking. Bake for about 8 - 10 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet. Press chocolate kiss into the center of each cookies, like in the instructions found here. Yield about 3 dozen.
The Taste: These cookies were GREAT! Love the flavor and the chewiness, definitely worthy of REPEATING! 
ENJOY! Come again...

Easy Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies
I been making these cookies for the past few weeks about every 3 to 4 days. My family really love them. I changed the recipe up a little more by adding 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar, using extra chunky peanut butter and adding 3/4 cup mini Reese's Pieces peanut butter chips. Scoop out onto parchment lined cookie cookies sheet flatten slightly; cookie don't spread much. Baking them at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes
