  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar

optional cookie toppings:

  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons cocktail nuts or other peanuts


  • Preheat the oven to 350° then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium size bowl blend the peanut butter, egg and sugar together. 
  • Flatten the balls in a crisscross pattern with a fork dipped in sugar.
  • Bake 9-10 minutes or until the edges are light brown then remove from the oven. Cool for 2 timed minutes on a baking sheet then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Optional chocolate glaze: Add the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of milk to a small bowl then microwave 30 seconds. Stir the glaze and if it’s not smooth enough to drizzle, add the remaining tablespoon of milk.
    Drizzle chocolate over the baked cookies in a back and forth motion then sprinkle a few crushed nuts on top. The glaze will firm up in a couple of seconds.
