I almost thought about calling these 100 Peanut butter cookies because this is my 100th recipe! A goal I had for 2012 and I'm meeting it in June. Exciting. Ok... on with the cookies. So I don't know what other PB Cookie recipes are like.... this is the only one I have tried, but hello... can we say easy??!!! They only have 3 ingredients. Ok... 3 and a half. But still... what a cinch!! It's a Paula Dean recipe.
2 Cups Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy)
2 Cups Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon. Roll the
dough into balls the size balls about the size of a tablespoon (too big and they don't look as pretty). Place the balls on the prepared
baking sheet. With a fork, dipped in sugar to prevent sticking, press
a crisscross design on each cookie. Bake for 9-10 minutes (recipe said 12 min, but mine cooked quicker and the ones I cooked a little longer were too crunchy for my taste)
Cool slightly before removing from pan.
Yields a little over 4 dozen cookies
