Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

I was craving peanut butter cookies all week and trying to resist making them since I was the only person home (and the only person to eat them!). On Wednesday night, I even got out all the ingredients, before resisting the urge and putting everything back in the cupboard. Finally, on Friday, C was back from his trip and we had a BBQ to go to the next day, so I succumbed and made the cookies. As the title says, they are super easy and can be made with stuff you have kicking around in the cupboards. Perfect for a can’t-deny peanut butter craving.


Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies

1 cup peanut butter (I use light)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 325F.

Cream all the ingredients together in the mixer.

Shape the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet. Press the balls flat with a fork to make a cross-hatch pattern.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Place on wire rack to cool.
