Peanut Butter Cookies

While I was peeling and chopping potatoes for Potato Soup and it was raining outside, my crazy teenage daughter and her friend were playing in the rain. Her other friend had the good sense to stay inside were it was warm and dry. He is a smart young man. He said he could bake some cookies if I had just 3 ingredients,:I cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg. I doubted seriously if he could do it; didn't he need flour? He assured me he could do it...go ahead, knock yourself out.

So, he mixed it all up, made little balls, pressed a fork onto them, and put them in the oven.
I was impressed.

After they baked, I was even MORE impressed! Maybe you already knew about the easy peanut butter recipe. I had never heard of it. It is so easy, you don't even have to write it down. Just bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.

So easy PB Cookies: 1 cup sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 egg

  1. This is my kind of baking! Definitely going to give it a try. :)

  2. Too funny, my husband begged me to make peanut butter cookies this year and I found this recipe and decided to make it because I didn't have a lot of time and they are delish!
