When my mother (who's now a great-grandmother) gave me this recipe about 15 years ago, I was skeptical, because it calls for only three ingredients and no flour. But since then I've never had a failure, and I make them all the time!

"I made these with 1/2 c. Truvia Baking Mix instead of sugar. I also added a tsp. baking soda and the texture was better."

"These were okay, but not as good as regular pb cookie recipes. Crumbled easy and had a grainy taste. I'm sticking with tried and true recipe. Amazing though it only took 3 ingredients. Would make in a pinch. Always have those ingredients on hand."

"I was really skeptical about only 3 ingredients but they're good! I also used brown sugar and cut it down to half a cup and put one chocolate chip on top."

"Great recipe for new little "bakers" to help prepare! No worries about over mixing and dough is ready in minures. We roll these in sugar before placing on cookie sheet lined with Silpat. Cookies do not spread. Bake for only about 10 minutes in our oven. Easiest cookie recipe you will find!"
