Sunday Snack Day

After a special request from one of my Twitter followers, @KingPup, this weeks recipe will be an old favourite..

Peanut Butter Crack Cookies

I call these “Crack Cookies” because the last time my husband took these to work, the boys couldnt stop going back for more!

Another great thing about these cookies is that they only use 3 INGREDIENTS which I can just about guarentee you already have in your pantry.

Peanut Butter Crack Cookies


  • 1 Cup of Peanut Butter (smooth or crunchy, whatever you have)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup of Caster Sugar

Equipment: Baking/Cookie Trays, Airing Racks, Baking Paper


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC (356ºF). Line your trays with baking paper.
  2. Put all the ingredients into your mixing bowl. (see tip).
  3. Either by hand or using your mixing machine, beat the ingredients together.
  4. Place teaspoon size balls onto your trays, with space for spreading (you may need to squish the dough together a bit before you roll them).  Squish them down a little if you like a flatter cookie.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes.  WATCH THEM LIKE A HAWK! They burn very quickly due to the sugar content.
  6. As soon as they are out of the oven, lift the cookies of the tray using THE BAKING PAPER and put them to the cooling racks.  The cookies are VERY soft while still warm, so try not to touch them.
  7. Once cool, store in an airtight container or gobble up!

Tip: grease your cup measure and spoon with a little oil before measuring out your peanut butter.  It helps it come out a lot easier.
Comment question: What’s your go to cookie? Do you have a great recipe that uses surprising ingredients?
