Recently, Dawn commented with an easy cookie recipe.Here’s a great, easy cookie recipe for peanut butter cookies: 1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla combine all ingredients together.
place tablespoons onto greased cookie sheet.
bake 12-15 minutes at 350
She confirmed there is no flour in these, which I found intriguing. They’re definitely not allergen-free, but if you’ve got a celiac issue in your family, this might work for you. I gave them a shot, and I can tell you WOW! These are SO easy, and SO good!
For the trial run, I made the recipe as-is. They cooked up more firmly than I expected, in teaspoonful drops. This makes a soft, puffy cookie, rather than a flat crisp one. Two-bite gems for a Christmas cookie plate. Let them cool on the (parchment-lined) pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Unfortunately, I was reminded that I did not put the fork marks on the top — well! Don’t forget that when you make yours. You’ll probably have to use the Tablespoonful drops, and that will give you closer to a dozen crispier cookies.
While the first dozen was cooking, I added about 1/4 cup chocolate chips to the remaining batter. OMIGOSH! I’m not usually one for mixing peanut butter with CHOCOLATE, but thought I give it a whirl for the guys. They turned out very yummy, but they liked the plain better.
This is a versatile recipe. I can see a quick roll in colored sugar, or finely chopped nuts. Butterscotch chips would be different, or you could use any other cookie add-ins. You could also do the Hershey kiss on top thing.
