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!!

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.
