three-ingredient peanut butter cookies

if you're still looking for a holiday cookie recipe, i'm popping in today to give you a quick and easy one! i whipped these up last minute before going to a christmas party (and they were eaten shortly thereafter, hence the lack of a picture). i made some as regular cookies, and some with hershey kisses in the middle for peanut butter blossoms. they're delicious either way.

three-ingredient peanut butter cookies (makes about 2 dozen)

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar (plus extra for rolling cookies in)
2 eggs

preheat oven to 350 degrees f. mix peanut butter, sugar and eggs in a large bowl. once mixed, roll the dough into small balls, coat evenly with sugar and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

if you're leaving them regular, press a fork lightly down on the batter to make crisscrosses. if you're making peanut butter blossoms, leave them in ball form until they are done cooking, then gently press a hershey kiss in the center immediately after removing them from the oven and allow to cool completely.

bake cookies for about 12-14 minutes.

happy holidays!
