The World's Easiest Cookies

As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday, I had a momentary panic as I realised I had friends due for coffee in an hour and nothing made to serve them.  In a situation like that I always whip out my old emergency standard, instant peanut butter cookies.  I happened to have a bag of Hershey's kisses lying around, so I used those as well, but you can just leave them plain if you'd like.  Crunchy, chewy and sweet, these literally take seconds to make and please everyone!


  • 1 cup peanut butter*
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 16 hershey's kisses or other small chocolate (optional)
Preheat oven to 180C/350F. 

Mix all ingredients together and form into sixteen balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for eighteen minutes.

Press kisses into cookies immediately upon removing from oven.

* This does not work well with "American Style" peanut butter that is commonly bought in Ireland.  Try and get actual American peanut butter if possible.  Aldi peanut butter is made in the USA, is cheap, tastes delicious and works perfectly!
