  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • granulated white sugar for rolling the cookie dough balls in


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  • Set aside.
  • Combine peanut butter, sugar and egg in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.
  • Pinch off a couple of tablespoons of dough and roll into balls.
  • Roll balls in sugar and coat well.
  • Place sugar-coated balls on prepared cookie sheets.
  • Press down lightly in criss-cross fashion with a fork.
  • Bake for 12-16 minutes until lightly browned and cookies have set up.


NOTE: I was baking 3 to 4 racks of cookies at a time. My cookies took about 15-16 minutes to bake. I rotated the pans half way through the cooking time.
NOTE: If you’re only baking one batch of cookies at a time, these cookies may be done in 12 minutes. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
