Talk about short and sweet: Each of these treats uses only three ingredients, most of which you likely have on hand.

By Kate Rockwood

  • Peanut Butter Cookies
    Thinkstock
    Peanut butter + sugar + egg

    Combine 1 cup each peanut butter and white sugar with 1 egg. Stir until smooth. Drop tablespoon-size balls of cookie dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes. Makes 1 dozen cookies.
  • Biscuit and Jam
    Thinkstock
    Whipping cream + self-rising flour + jam

    Combine ½ cup heavy whipping cream and 1 cup self-rising flour. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Roll to ¾" thickness and cut with a 2" biscuit cutter. Bake at 425° for 12 to 15 minutes on a lightly greased baking sheet. Top with jam to serve. Makes 6 biscuits.
  • Chocolate Fudge
    Thinkstock
    Chocolate chips + sweetened condensed milk + butter

    Heat 2 cups chocolate chips, 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, and 2 Tbsp. butter in microwave in 30-second blasts, stirring, until melted and smooth. Pour mixture into a greased 9" square baking pan. Chill until firm. Makes 1 pan.
  • Banana Bread Cookies
    Thinkstock
    Bananas + oats + walnuts

    Mash 2 large overripe bananas in a bowl. Add 1 cup rolled oats and ¼ cup chopped walnuts. Drop rounded tablespoons of batter onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 350°. Makes 12 cookies.

  • Cupcakes
    Thinkstock
    Cake mix + soda + whipped cream

    Combine 1 box any flavor cake mix with 1 can room-temperature soda in any flavor. (We're partial to chocolate mix and Coca-Cola.) Whisk until smooth. Pour batter into a lined muffin tin. Bake for 18 minutes at 350° until a toothpick emerges clean. Let cool completely, then top with whipped cream. Makes 12 cupcakes.
