Mix the three ingredients until you have smooth, clay-like dough. Form into balls (tsp. size works well) and flatten by pressing criss-cross pattern with fork.
Bake 350 degrees F for about 10-15 minutes. Watch your first batch as time depends on size and the type of peanut butter you use. I like mine to get golden brown around the edges.

I've made these often and to make them even yummier, dip one edge (or half the cookie) in melted chocolate chips and then in chopped peanuts. But they're good plain too!
oh these sound so good...can't wait to try them
thank you thank you
I've been making this for a couple of years now and my family loves them i will try the tip with the chocolate and peanuts sounds yummy
If you are diabetic or need to watch your calories, this recipe will work to make a sugar-free cookie. Just use 1 cup of Splenda instead of the sugar. The cookies will be a little more tender than with sugar, but are still very good.
