I lost the first batch. 250C is way too high for the oven temp. & they burnt in about 4 minutes. Tried again & cooked the second batch at 180C for 10 minutes. OK but a bit too sweet for me. Would reduce the sugar if I make again.-11 May 2014

In a mixing bowl, add egg, erythritol, and Peanut Butter. Mix well until a
soft batter forms.

Scoop out the batter and roll into small balls.

Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or use a good non stick baking
pan. Space each cookie an inch or so apart.
Take a fork and press the batter balls so they flatten and get the traditional
Peanut Butter cookie pattern on them.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool for about 30 minutes prior to eating. This way, they
will firm up a bit. Otherwise, they will have a cake like texture.

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat silicone mat or parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter, sugar and egg until completely combined. Drop the dough, one spoonful at a time, onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Leave the dough as is, or take a fork and lightly press into the top of the cookie horizontally, then vertically, to create a checkered pattern. If you’d like to add chocolate chips, or any other candy, gently press them into the tops of the cookies before baking.

Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tops are golden and the bottoms are lightly browned.

The Amish Cook: Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

A special thanks to you all for your interest and prayers regarding our foster and adoption journey. It certainly has been an eventful one. (Stay tuned for easy 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies at the end of the column!)

Four years ago, Daniel told me to go ahead and see if I can track down a foster agency of some kind. With no internet access, I resorted to the phone book. Each time I picked up the phone and made a call, I was directed to another party. Finally, at long last, I was connected to the right person. When I hung up the phone 30 minutes later, I found myself repeatedly staring into space. It hung heavy on my heart. When Daniel returned home from work, I told him every detail I remembered.

After a long story and many little miracles, we were thrilled to have the foster license in our hands nine months later. It stated that we could take two children under the age of two. Are we crazy?" I wondered repeatedly, but then there was no way around the unwavering reality that God brought us here. By this point, I was halfway through my third pregnancy. We had no idea how everything would all fall into place but hung to the reality that there really is One who has a perfect plan for us and the dear little children out there who need us as their mom and daddy. Three weeks later, when Daniel called me, I basically leaped through the phone line. He ever so calmly informed me that he had a call from DCFS, telling him that they are looking for a home for a 15 month-old girl and her newborn brother.

From that first moment, both of us were filled with eager anticipation, yet so aware that children don't get their emotional needs met on their own we didn't want anyone falling through the cracks. I admit, I also wondered what people would say about this crazy couple. Still, there was no way around what God was putting in our paths. It was up to us to pick it up and take another step in faith. I had a zillion unanswered questions churning in my head. After more discussion, I picked up the phone and told the caseworker that yes, we have decided to take these dear children.

After Daniel returned home from work, we had a driver take us to Walmart. As I write, I can still feel the exhilarating feeling of shopping for my babies, which I did not know. I reached for diapers, formula, and we picked out another car seat. Is it true? Is this happening to me? It was a dream come true, yet I had no idea what the future would hold. There was the stark reality of perhaps bonding with these children as my own, only to have them move back to another home. I was determined that I would not refrain from loving them in any way in case my heart would break one day. "What if no one would love me in case their heart would break?" I reasoned.

That night Daniel and I tossed and turned as we thought of the babies coming at noon the following day it all seemed so unreal and uncertain. Deep down, there was an abiding assurance that the God who orchestrated it all would also see us through anything ahead.

Now here we are, three and a half years later, and we are signing stacks of papers yes, we are on the very last steps of final adoption! As I look back, I heave a gentle sigh. No, I had no idea what journey lay ahead of us. I'm glad I didn't. Yes, it has brought more joys than I could ever tell, and yes, we have learned a lot about dealing with trauma children. Life is a journey, and there is always more to learn. Many others who have traveled the same path have been there for us along the way. Family and friends, you all, have been there for us way more than we ever deserved. We look at it as the love of God flowing through you, into our hearts.

As I mentioned a week ago, we had planned to sign papers at the attorney's office. Get the picture we sat across his desk with the two foster children and Elijah and Joshua. The children were all eyes and ears, trying to grasp this whole adoption thing. Jesse wondered what the attorney would do with us Elijah declared that he wants to be adopted too! After 30 minutes' worth of going through papers and signing, we stood to leave when Jesse became all distressed, "I didn't sign any papers yet!" he declared. "Oh sure, you can sign, too," we assured him. Getting a piece of scrap paper, Daniel helped Jesse sign his name. Of course, Hosanna and Elijah wouldn't be left behind on such a privilege, as they echoed the request. Soon there were three signatures on the scrap paper, which the kind attorney told them he would be sure to file.

We walked out of the office with glowing hearts. It seemed too good to be true.

Easy 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies

(Editor's Note: You can easily make these without the chocolate, Gloria's recipe is without that and without the coarse salt, you can make them with or without, delicious either way!)

Now wrapping up, I asked Julia for a simple recipe to go with a lengthy column. She popped up with this easy 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies recipe. Enjoy!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies:

These cookies are gluten free IF you use gluten free peanut butter. I recommend organic, unsweetened peanut butter. Go get some fresh ground from real peanuts for best flavor. Even the &lsquonatural&rsquo peanut butters I&rsquove used are higher in fat than fresh ground.

You guessed it. They add oil back into the peanut butter. Sneaky! Organic fresh ground peanut butter has NO sugar or added oil, or chemicals. This recipe has plenty of sugar. The peanut butter does NOT need to add any more!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are fast and simple to make. These treats are gluten free, low sodium, and dairy free. Make em and Bake em! No fridge time required!

  • Add ½ cup chocolate chips to the batter.
  • Drizzle cooked cookies with chocolate.
  • Add in ⅓ cup peanuts or another nut to batter.
  • Spread jelly on one side and smash two cookies together for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

As you can see the ways to enjoy this dessert are endless. Whether you stay home or go out, you have recipes and activities to enjoy.


  • Egg – This recipe uses one large egg to bind all the ingredients together.
  • Peanut Butter – Chunky or creamy work for this recipe. However, I do not recommend the natural stir kinds.
  • Sugar – One cup of granulated sugar does the trick although I have cut it down to 3/4 with minimal impact.

Yes, these cookies are gluten free! That makes them a perfect and quick dessert for people with gluten allergies! Most store bought gluten free cookies are higher priced than traditional cookies, so these are a blessing!

Trial & Error

I first tried this recipe using ‘sugar in the raw’ thinking it’d be more molassesy or something.

Although the taste was good, the texture was not. I’ve always thought peanut butter cookies had a subtle sugar-grain feel to them, but these were downright gritty.

No problem, RancherMan scarfed up that batch of ‘mistake cookies’. LOL.

Then I tried the recipe with regular ole granulated sugar instead. I also added a tiny 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract in the batter because I love the taste of vanilla too.

The texture was much improved and the cookies baked up smoother with a lighter color too. We both loved these.

I may experiment with brown sugar for future batches of these peanut butter cookies. But a cup of brown sugar sounds like a lot. Maybe half brown sugar & half granulated?

Or heck maybe I won’t change a thing. They were delicious and really hit the spot. And you can’t beat a recipe with three tiny ingredients #amiright??
