Peanut butter cookies go well with a glass of milk

Peanut butter cookies are one of my favorite treats. I make two batches once a month. A batch for us and a batch for our pup.   

Random fact: Did you know peanut butter helps with freshening your pup’s breath? It can get messy if you opt to give them a spoonful.

If your little ones love sharing their food with the pup, then I suggest making them into cookies. These three-ingredient peanut butter treats will come in handy.

Alternatives To Classic Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Back in high school, I took culinary arts with a sweet nun who passed away about a year ago. She taught me how to make several cookies, among them were these delicious, chewy peanut butter flavored cookies using Crisco, flour, peanut butter, eggs, sugar…and a whole bunch of ingredients that I honestly don’t remember what else we would throw into the bowl.    But what I do remember was the key ingredient: love. I use it daily.   

My classmates and I had so much fun in culinary arts class that it really made me realize how much I enjoyed being in the kitchen. 

When we got Rocky, we tried several times to get him to eat peanut butter on his treats and on a spoon. It didn’t work, and he’d leave a mess everywhere.  So I took out my culinary arts binder and searched for the classic recipe for these cookies.  I didn’t have much from that list of ingredients except peanut butter and eggs. 

With technology, you can always find the answer to the most random questions. You can guess what I searched for on Google. It was interesting to see that a simple recipe for peanut butter cookies actually existed.   

Three ingredients to be exact:
1 egg
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar   

That’s it.

So I did it, and I honestly can’t remember how long they said to leave it for, but I left the cookies in the oven for less than 10 minutes at 350 degrees.   The results: pure deliciousness. 

Everyone who has ever tried them has good things to say. One tip: Always serve with cold milk if they’re fresh from the oven.  I recently switched regular peanut butter with natural peanut butter. This change in ingredients makes the peanut butter cookies taste like pure peanuts! You can also opt to leave out the cup of sugar for a healthier option.

I make this cookie recipe once a month for the boys because they contain way too much sugar. It’s always fun to watch our toddler feed the cookies to the pup. It’s one of the ways they bond.

Of course, it had to be through food.
