Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

I don’t enjoy baking but I love eating sweets! Which means I never seem to have all the ingredients to make a good cookie. But that changed after my friend shared this deliciously easy recipe. Who doesn’t have sugar, an egg and peanut butter (unless you have a peanut allergy) on hand? It’s a simple recipe that I recently brought to our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and they were a hit.
