3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Super Easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. My boys loved making up a batch of these after school, even when they were in High School. You can’t beat warm cookies right from the oven as a treat before starting homework.

No flour needed for these cookies, just peanut butter, sugar and an egg.
