Peanut butter cookies
I may have posted this recipe before. It's an easy recipe to fall back on when you're short on time or ingredients.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 C peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 C sugar
Mix together all three ingredients. It helps if the peanut butter is at room temperature. Grease your hands. Roll the cookies into 1 inch balls (should make 12-14 cookies). Dip a fork in sugar (dip it in water or run it over a cookie first). Lightly press down on the cookies to make grid marks.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving to a rack. They will be crumbly until they cool.
This recipe is great if you're out of flour, if you're baking for a gluten-free person (we have a couple youth at church who can't eat gluten), or if you just need a super easy recipe. I can whip up a double batch in no time and I always get compliments.
