4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies – Deliciously soft and chewy peanut butter cookies that are loaded with flavour, and are only 4 ingredients!
Peanut butter lovers, I have the recipe for you. Today, I bring you my 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies – yep, you only need 4 ingredients to make these cookies!
These soft and chewy cookies only require a few simple ingredients – peanut butter, sugar, one egg, and a little vanilla extract. They take 5 – 10 minutes to throw together, and about 10 minutes in the oven. Oh, and you only need one bowl and a spatula. These are the easiest cookies you’ll ever make, and they are incredibly delicious!
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter 250g
- 1 cup caster/granulated sugar 200g
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
Stir together the peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract until combined.
Using a small or medium scoop, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking tray. Dip a fork in sugar, and flatten each cookie, making a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. The cookies will be super soft, but they'll firm up as they cool! Allow to cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cookies stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 1 week. Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen for an extra minute.
