1. Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

You won’t believe that these silky smooth cookies only have three ingredients. Just one cup of sugar, 1 cup of peanut butter, and 1 egg (or 2 if you like gooier cookies), yields 18 perfect little bites (recipe here). Seriously, all you have to do is stir. The cookies will be ready to go before the oven even has time to preheat. If you’re so inclined, chocolate chips make a great addition. Or if you want a throwback, sandwich them with your favorite jelly.
