Simply great as a comfort food appetizer.  I made this twice for company (doubling the recipe) and not one drop was left


At our cookbook group various food writers are discussed and one such writer is Rozanne Gold, a fantastic food writer who once cooked for Mayor Ed Koch.  She has written a series of books (some are still available on BCCLS) which are 3 ingredient recipes.  She now hosts a food podcast "One Woman Kitchen" which features interviews with influencers in the food industry such as Lydia Bastianich.

Her 3 ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are a favorite of mine.  They are gluten free and turn out great every time.


Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup Peanut Butter

1 cup Sugar

1 Extra Large Egg


With an electric mixer, combine the egg and sugar with a pinch of salt until smooth and well combined.

Then add the peanut butter.  This will form a dough which you made into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Take approx 2 tsp of dough rolled into a ball and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Using the tines of a fork flatten each ball.  You can sprinkle a little brown or white granulated sugar if you choose too as well(optional). 


Bake for 10-11 minutes and let the cookies cool on the sheet.
