Yesterday, out of the blue, I developed a sudden desire to eat peanut butter cookies. To fight the temptation, I first vacuumed the entrance hall. Then I went for a swim. Then I took Lily the Beagle for a long walk. And when we returned from our stroll, I made a big batch of peanut butter cookies.
Peanut butter cookies are so delicious they should be illegal. They are sinfully easy to make, too. I use the same 3-ingredient recipe that’s been floating around the internet of late. It’s the same recipe that I and millions of other cookie enthusiasts have been using for decades.
Bake on the center rack of a preheated 325°F oven until done — 15 minutes. By the looks of things, you’ll think the cookies are under-baked. But just let them cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes, and they will firm up beautifully.
