I love to bake and try out new recipes like this one. I love this recipe, and I think you will, too.

Do you love to bake but don't have the time or energy? If so, then you are like me. I work a full-time job and then come home to write part-time and keep house. I love to bake but lack the time or energy to do so. But that changed when I searched online for an easy and quick peanut butter cookie recipe. This recipe is the best. All it takes is three ingredients. It tastes just like regular peanut butter cookies but uses many fewer ingredients. This recipe is great for any time.

        I use to make these all the time when I was a kid. They're super easy and turn out really good. Think I will make them again soon :)
