Looking for the perfect peanut butter cookie recipe? With this peanut butter cookie recipe, you will have the best tasting, easy to make peanut butter cookies with only three ingredients.

I love peanut butter cookies. I love making them from scratch, but sometimes I don’t want to deal with all the ingredients to make them. Isn’t that the reason so many people buy cookies premade. No one wants to deal with the hassle of making them. With these peanut butter cookies, it is so simple to make that you won’t want to waste money on store-bought cookies, that are not even as tasty. 

The other problem with store-bought cookies you don’t always know what are in them. With these three-ingredient cookies, there is no guessing. You know what the cookies are made of. 

How Long Does It Take to Make Peanut Butter Cookies

The prep time on these cookies is so short. It only takes about 5 minutes to make the peanut butter cookie batter and the cookies bake in 8 minutes. In under 20 minutes, you can be eating fresh-baked warm peanut butter cookies. If you are looking for another 3 ingredient cookie, you should try my Nutella Cookies.

How Long do Peanut Butter Cookies Stay Good?

When you make these cookies, if you store them in a sealed, airtight container, the cookies can stay fresh for two to three weeks. However, I don’t think they will last that long. These cookies tend to be eaten right away. They are too good to resists.
