The easiest cookies in the World.

Hilary posted the simplest recipe in the world on her blog last night. I thought it might be a typo, but vowed I would have to try it for myself.

Tonight, the Food Network was taunting me with a birthday cake challenge, and then the URS cake episode. It put me in the mood for some sweets, but not enough to slave away baking something for hours. The perfect time to try out Hilary's recipe. Don't blink because you'll miss it.

Preheat oven to 375°F

Stir together 1 egg, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter. No joke.

Plop the batter out on a cookie sheet, and mush it down some with a fork. Then bake for 10-12 minutes.


They are SO peanut buttery good, you will not be sorry! I don't understand how it's physically possible for those 3 ingredients to bake into a cookie, but I'm not going to question it, because wahtever it is, it works!

That does sound weird, but those are ingredients I always have on hand! I'm going to try those too! Thanks Christina!

We make these at Christmas so that my wheat-allergic BIL and Katherine can both eat them. We add chocolate chips, though!

Christina said...

Mmmmmmm nice touch with the chocolate chips!!! I'll definitely remember that next time!

Hilary said...

ooh, I'm so excited you tried this recipe, too! I also was doubtful at first that a recipe could be so easy..but, alas, it was!

Choc. chips would be a good addition. I'm thinking white choc. chips. Mmmm

I told my cousin and she made them tonight, too. She used crunchy peanut butter and the mini chocolate chips - said it was a really yummy combo.

I have been making these for years and they really work. I am wondering if one might also try useing almond butter or some other nut butter.
