It’s Peanut Butter Cookie Time…Where ya at? Where ya at?

22 Aug

So we were craving some sweetness last night and after perusing the pantry, I noticed an overwhelming amount of peanut butter. Being the peanut butter lover that I am, it was a  surprise that a copious amount of such greatness would last this long in my pantry. I immediately decided that cookies would cure our sweet fix. But alas, not enough flour…what’s mama to do? Google a recipe for flour-less peanut butter cookies, of course!

I’ve made peanut butter cookies before, but never without the usual ingredients such as flour and brown sugar, etc. I was skeptical at first but figured, if it sucked, I wouldn’t have wasted much…except for that sweet-sweet peanut buttah!! The cookies came out great. They did crumble easily and were a little too sweet  (even for me) but my daughter LOVED them, and that’s all that matters to me! Enjoy!!

Easy Peanut Butter Cookie recipe adapted from Kraft Foods…

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Beat egg with mixer until foamy. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Flatten in a crisscross pattern with the tines of a fork. Bake for 10 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets  for 1 min. Remove to wire racks; allow cookies to cool completely.
