These flourless peanut butter cookies only take one bowl and are a breeze to whip up. Their ultra-rich flavor makes them perfect for peanut butter lovers!
‣ 1 cup granulated sugar ‣ 1 cup peanut butter ‣ 1 large egg ‣ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), add sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract.
Cream everything together on medium-high speed until batter is thick and crumbly.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop out some dough, then roll it between your hands until it forms a ball. Place the cookie ball on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Use a fork to gently press a criss-cross pattern on the top of the cookie. Doing this will also give the cookie a classic flat, round shape, since these cookies won’t change that much while baking.
Bake cookies for about 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies have dried and are no longer as shiny. Note that cookies will not expand or grow as much while baking; this is okay.
