Cookie hunger can strike at any time. This is an easy cookie recipe that requires few ingredients – three ingredients, to be precise. Its simplicity and the fact that it only takes a few minutes to cook means that you never again have to be short of cookies for more than a few minutes.

Many cookie recipes require odd ingredients – or, at least, ones that you won’t necessarily have in the house. This one has only three: egg, peanut butter and sugar. You don’t even need flour, which means that it’s perfect for coeliacs and those with gluten intolerance. This is truly the easiest cookie recipe out there. If you’re pushed for time, or entertaining at short notice and need to impress without going out to the shops first, this is one to go for.

All you need to do is mix one cup of peanut butter and one cup of sugar together with one egg. Then spoon lumps of the mixture onto a baking sheet that has been lightly greased. Cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees (make sure you preheat the oven).

Voila: easy cookies with only three ingredients.

You can mix it up a bit if you want. These are pretty sugary and sweet, and so you can try cutting down on the sugar. Instead, try grating some chocolate into the mixture – peanut butter and chocolate is always a winning combination. White sugar will give you a different taste to brown sugar. Also, you’ll find it makes a difference if you use unsalted butter. Enjoy!
