Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Greenlydia - A South African Travel blog

No really, THE EASIEST recipe ever. Even when it flops it’s pretty damn good.

I felt like something sweet because life has been pretty bitter lately. Those whom know me well know that I am an okayish (home) cook but a miserable baker. I don’t know why but my cakes collapse and my cookies are burnt to a crisp 90% of the time.

I once baked a cake that turned to a strange solid substance to dense the dog didn’t want to eat it.

So I was thrilled when I didn’t screw these up.

Peanut butter cookies remind me of home. Brackenfell. Most of Cape Town rags on the Northern Subs but it will always be home to me. Peanut butter cookies remind me of the house we grew up in (well I did, my siblings were in High School already when we moved in there). Sitting in the kitchen drinking coffee and going through a tin of cookies in one sitting

Here’s what you need:

cookie 1

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 little drizzle of Vanilla essence because it smells so nice.

Here’s what you do:

Moer it all in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until it kinda looks like cookie dough.


You Spray & Cook something that resembles a backing tray.


Roll tiny balls and place them on whatever you chose to use as a baking tray.


Take a fork and squish on a pattern. This also flattens to cookie to make them look like cookies.

Bake at 180’ for 10 minutes.

cookie 2

Remove from oven, let it cool (or not) and EAT IT ALL.

If you tried this and loved it as much as I do pop a comment below and tell me.

*the photos are crappy because I was distracted by how good the cookies were.
