4 Ingredient Cookies

We had a cookie emergency here yesterday afternoon so the kids and I whipped up a batch of 4 Ingredient Cookies. I wasn’t even going to post about it here but several people on Facebook and Instagram hadn’t heard of these little gems when I thought everyone knew about them. Maybe that is a sign that I spend too much time googling cookie recipes?

The recipe couldn’t be simpler and is very forgiving. Sometimes I just eyeball it instead of measuring. One of my friends dialed the sugar back by half and reported they were still rich and delicious. I like these super sweet so they almost taste like the inside of a Reese’s peanut butter cup, so I will probably keep the sugar as is.

These are fantastic crumbled on top of a few scoops of ice cream, as Mr Piehole and I discovered last night.

Four Ingredient Cookies

1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
Chocolate chips (I like milk but I suppose you could use semi sweet)

Mix, scoop, bake at 350 until just barely set.

These will harden significantly as they cool and you want to retain a moist center or they will be crumbly. Mine took 18 minutes, turning halfway through.
