“I was trying to make simple, three ingredient peanut butter cookies, but I ended up short on peanut butter and had to improvise. They turned out very light, crispy and delicious! I am very happy with them----! ^w^”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Sift together sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon very well.
  3. Add egg and peanut butter, mix thoroughly(about 1 minute or so).
  4. Mixture should be very moist. Add the flour and mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll into balls (I recommend using a tablespoon full, but I suppose they could be bigger is desired) and place on cookies sheet, leaing about an inch in between each cookie.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking every so often and touching (I really mean TOUCHING. Do not press or you will have flat cookies; very delicate.) the top of the cookie with a spoon. They are done when touching the top shows has no effect on the cookie.
  7. Eat with milk or alone. I recommend eating them when they are still good -- >3<.
