Simple Peanut Butter Cookies...

This is quite possibly the most idiot-proof recipe known to man. (That said, if you mess it up, you're not an idiot. But they are really simple.) This is the peanut butter cookie recipe my mom always used; it's out of an old church cookbook and who knows what southern lady it originally came from. Anyway, I started making these pretty regularly a while back because a) they're SO simple and b) I always have all the ingredients. I'm not a very good baker (like, not at all) but these turn out really awesome every time.

All you need to do is:

Mix one cup of peanut butter, one cup of sugar, one egg, and one teaspoon (or "tisp!" if you're a fairy in Sleeping Beauty) and roll them into little balls. Place a few inches apart on a cookie sheet, press down in a criss-cross pattern with a fork, then bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes. (I did 11 this time and let them sit and they were just right.)

Nom nom nom.

There are very few foods with which I'll drink plain milk (gag) but this is one of them.

Eat ALL the cookies!

Look at that pile of goodness.

Seriously, you know a cookie is easy (and good) if I get asked for a recipe. I mean, really. So go ahead and whip these up. They're the best! Promise!



  1. Oh, these look absolutely scrumptious! Might just need to make these :)
