Tasty Tuesday: The Easiest Cookie Recipe EVER!

Sometimes I come across a recipe that just blows my mind. I try to figure out how the recipe works without what I consider essential ingredients. One day I will go to culinary school to learn the science behind cooking, which I think sounds so interesting.

When I first saw this recipe in a magazine, I wanted to make it just to see if it tasted good (it does!) and if it was really that easy (it is!).

Here is what you need to make Peanut Butter Cookes:

1 egg
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar

Seriously, that is all you need, no flour, no butter, nothing else...I promise!

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.

Now pinch off some of the dough and roll into about a 1-inch ball.

Roll the ball on a plate sprinkled with sugar until all sides are coated. This is the step my childred beg to do!

Place the balls on a cookie sheet and gently press a criss cross design onto the top of each with a fork.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Let cool, then eat them up!

Some adjustments you can make:
  • If you like softer cookies, then don't press out the balls before baking. Bake the balls as they are for about five minutes, take them out of the oven and press the criss-cross shape on the top, then bake for five more minutes.
  • If you want to make the peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses in them, then bake the cookies as a ball for three minutes. Take out the cookie balls, press a chocolate kiss into the middle of each one, then finish baking for seven more minutes.

Nothing goes better with peanut butter cookies than some ice, cold milk in the treehouse,
