The Easiest Cookies You’ll Ever Make – 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus extra as needed, optional
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. In a large bowl or mixer beat peanut butter and sugar together.
  3. Once combined, beat in egg and vanilla extract and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Using a tablespoon or just your hands, form dough into equal-sized balls and place on baking sheet.Note: you can roll cookies in sugar if you prefer they be coated before baking.
  5. Use the tines of a fork to imprint a criss-cross shape on each cookie, then place in oven.
  6. Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom, but not fully set. (They will continue to set once out of the oven.)
  7. Remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy.
