Every once in a while, I have an experiment go wrong in the kitchen that turns out to be a happy accident. This weekend I was a little obsessive with peanut butter. Okay, very obsessive.
I started with one peanut butter recipe idea and it made me think of another and then another, like an avalanche, until I ran out of peanut butter.
Anyhow, these cookies are ridiculously easy to make. Of course they aren’t as perfect in texture as a cookie using oil and baking soda, but they still taste great. It’s perfect for peanut butter enthusiasts. The cookies are a little bit dense and a little delicate to the touch. But the still hold together and pack an intense peanut butter flavor.
Technically the chocolate chips make it four ingredients, but if you want plain peanut butter cookies, it’s only three. If you’ve tried the three ingredient nutella cookies, it’s a similar style of cookie. These cookies are perfect when you want something simple and want to whip something up really fast.
