Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s happened again.  I think I may be the last person on the planet to discover the 3 ingredient cookie recipes.  I really enjoy a peanut butter cookie.  I love the cross hatching using a fork.  They end up looking timeless, exactly like my mom made them.

My D-I-L said she made these everyday she was in lock down and now I understand why.  I simply cannot believe there are only 3 ingredients.  Gluten-free girl was up today for the first time in 3 months and we were able to share them with her.  She was totally shocked as well.

I think I’m pretty smart on the whole, but I cannot think of these brilliant ideas.  Why oh why didn’t I get the clever gene instead of being so incredibly cute?  I’ve since seen several more 3 ingredient cookies and I will be giving them a try soon, but first I have to get out of the sweet habit if you know what I mean.  At least I’m not going to the grocery store and picking up goodies to go along with these treats.

1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy

1 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

Combine all the ingredients with your hand mixer until creamy.

Roll into teaspoon sized balls.  Roll in sugar.  Place on parchment lined cookie sheet.    Press each dough roll down with a fork.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes.  Let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

 * From the Recipe Box:

I’m old school.  G’s mom taught me to cool cookies on dish towels and brown paper sacks.  Now I usually put a dish towel down and put parchment paper on top.  If you don’t have parchment, wax paper will do nicely.

G did not like the cookie balls rolled in sugar.  He thought they tasted too sugary and grainy.

and remember:  I know everything happens for a reason, but WTF!  Big kiss, Lynn
