Today is life changing. I decided I have to break up with peanut butter.

But wait… I have a third of a jar left that is too tempting to resist.
Ding! Cookies!

I scoured the internet for recipes for peanut butter cookies with marshmallows. I love the combo but couldn’t decide what I wanted to do… So I experimented with these. And they are amazing because you only need one bowl and the ingredients are all basic and cheap!

Seriously. Peanut butter cookies three ways – one bowl. No, I’m not going to make a three girls, one cup joke. You disgust me for anticipating that!

What you need:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 egg white
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup flour
10 large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter and peanut butter until combined. Add sugars, baking powder and soda, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in egg white and vanilla. Slowly add in flour until combined thoroughly.
If you would like plain peanut butter cookies this is a great recipe! Roll into one inch balls and bake for approximately 8 minutes. To beautify sprinkle sugar on top and x with a fork.
For another option you can slice up a large marshmallow into 10 bits and add a few into each little cookie dough ball you roll. Bake for approximately 8 minutes.
Now for my favorite variation. Cut a large marshmallow in half. Roll the cookie to an inch and a half to two inches and bake for 6 minutes. Remove and push the marshmallow half, cut side down, into the center of the soft cookie dough. Bake for an additional 2 minutes.
