Recipe: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These tasty cookies are made with a bare minimum of ingredients, but a maximum of flavor!


  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar (almost any form of sugar will work)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until well blended.
  3. Place mounds of 1 tablespoon each of cookie batter about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies.
  4. Bake until golden around edges, about 10 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  5. You can sprinkle these cookies with coarse sea salt, if desired.
