Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
For more cookie recipes:
This recipe is so amazingly simple: only 3 ingredients! Best of all, you more than likely have these ingredients on hand.
What you need:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
extra sugar for coating
Cream the peanut butter and sugar together. When fluffy, add the egg and mix thoroughly. The mixture may be a little wet and soft, so handle with care. Scoop some dough and roll into a small ball. Roll in sugar and place on cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten slightly. Bake at 350 F for 8 - 10 minutes, depending on the oven. Check frequently as the bottoms can burn easily. The total number of cookies will depend on how large or small you make them. Just be forewarned that these will disappear before they are completely cooled on the cookie rack!
1. Try mixing the peanut butter: use 1/2 cup organic peanuts-only-butter and 1/2 cup regular peanut butter. The taste of the cookie is much more aromatic and it is less sweet.
2. Double the recipe because they won't last.
3. Store in an air tight container (if you have any left) to retain freshness.
4. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, but decrease the sugar by half.
