You can literally make them (from the time you get that peanut butter urge, until the time they're done) in 15 minutes. 15 minutes! Three minutes to assemble and mix the ingredients and 12 minutes to bake. Really - give it a try...
Ready, set, go!
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (makes 15-18)
Preheat the oven to 180'C
Line a baking tray with parchment or a silicone baking sheet
250g peanut butter (choose the no sugar added variety)
120g light brown sugar
1 XL egg
(You can throw in a handful of choc-chips or nuts if you'd like to; half a cupful will do.)
Mix all the ingredients together.
Place spoonfuls of the batter onto the baking tray.
Press down with a fork.
Bake at 180'C for 10-12 minutes.
Allow to cool before removing from the baking tray.
Dang! I forgot to include cooling time in that 15 minute timeframe. But it's essential: these cookies are very soft and crumbly when they come out the oven, but crisp up once cooled. Be patient. Wait. Ok, now ...
