Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Spritz Cookies

Posted By Megan On November 13, 2012 @ 6:34 am In Christmas,cookies,Uncategorized | 14 Comments

One of my daughter’s favorite cookie recipes is the  3 ingredient peanut butter cookie. Peanut butter, sugar, and eggs are all stables in this household, and we are always ready (and willing), to whip up a fresh batch of  delicious cookies.

I made these festive cookies into spritz cookies because I wanted to play with my a new cookie press, but you can make them into balls and use the familiar crisscross pattern by pressing them with the tines of a  fork. Then add an optional little drizzle of some melted chocolate and a sprinkle of chopped peanuts, and they’re all dressed up for the season.
