Rating Recipes: Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


During the COVID19 pandemic, we were all bored in our homes. One of the things I did to pass time was bake delicious desserts for me and my family. I became very fond of three-ingredient recipes as they were quick and easy to make. Today I will be sharing and rating a peanut butter cookie recipe so you know whether or not you might like to try  it.


Prep Time: About 10 minutes

Bake Time: 10 minutes

Cooling Time: 5 minutes

Total: 25 minutes

Servings: Around 15 cookies (may vary depending on cookie sizes)


1 cup sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.

Combine peanut butter, sugar, and egg using a rubber spatula in a medium mixing bowl.

Measure about a tablespoon of the batter and roll it into a ball. Then place the ball onto the baking tray. Repeat until you have filled the baking tray, with about an inch of space between each cookie. After all of your cookies are placed on the tray, press a fork onto the cookie dough to create a criss-cross pattern as shown in the photo.

Put the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes. 

After you take the cookies out, let them cool on the tray for about a minute. Then transfer them to a cooling rack

The Process

Peanut butter cookies are simple and easy to make. There are only three easy and convenient ingredients, and they can be found in every baker’s home. They bake and cool quickly, which is important if you are in a time crunch, or if you simply are craving a quick treat. Cleaning up isn’t any more of a hassle than your regular cookie or cake. In conclusion, peanut butter cookies are quick and easy, making them a conveniently sweet treat!

My Thoughts

I had a lot of mixed feelings about these cookies. Personally, I am not a peanut butter person, so this wasn’t my favorite. They were still good and my family enjoyed them a lot. It was a good mixture of bitter and sweet and the flavor was unique without being overwhelming. This is why I chose to rate it ⅗ stars.


Final Rating: ★★★☆☆
