This is one of my favorite simple peanut butter cookie recipes. THESE COOKIES ARE VERY SWEET they end up tasting more like candy than cookies. Add a 1/2 cup of flour or reduce sugar by 1/2 cup to achieve a less candylike taste.

How to Make Mema's Simple Peanut Butter Cookie

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine eggs, sugar, peanut butter and flour (optional) until smooth.
  2. Using a tablespoon, spoon the dough onto a nonstick or greased cookie sheet approximately 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown.
    NOTE: These cookies can be baked for as little as 6 minutes depending on your oven, altitude, etc. Adjust baking time accordingly
  4. Let the cookies cool for about 1 minute
  5. Place unwrapped Hugs or Kisses in the center of the cookie, pressing down slightly to ensure the candy stays in place. NOTE: Your candy will melt when it touches the warm cookie. No need to worry! The candy will harden again as the cookies cool.
  6. Once cookies have cooled, they can be stored in an airtight plastic container with waxpaper seperating the layers.
