Have you ever had the urge for something sweet to eat only to realize there is nothing in your pantry? With 3 simple ingredients, you can get your sweet tooth fix in no time.
Recently, my sister text me saying she had a sweet craving and nothing sweet to eat in her pantry or fridge. Nothing sweet to eat at all. I asked her if she had this ingredient or that ingredient. No was her definitive answer. Basically, she had nothing.
I racked my brain for a few minutes. LIGHT BULB MOMENT! It dawned on me that I had the perfect recipe. I remembered a cookie that I’ve been making for years. I asked her if she had 3 simple pantry staples…peanut butter, sugar, and an egg. She text back with a resounding YES. I knew I was onto something.
I gave her the measurements and she was off to baking.
It wasn’t long before I was getting a text from my sister saying how delicious and peanut buttery these cookies were. Not to mention how easy! Her sweet tooth had been completely satisfied.
