Fresh Baked Cookies

In Cookies, Dessert, Recipes on March 8, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Sometimes when I open that jar of Jif, I feel like it’s a Folgers commercial in my house as all the noses perk up and my puppies and husband are all suddenly standing around the kitchen, eager to partake. My husband in particular has an obsession with the peanut butter-chocolate combination. I love to do a number of variations on that. He also loves to eat healthy and exercise quite a bit, so for me to make a traditional batch of peanut butter cookies when baking for ourselves just isn’t realistic. That is why this easy recipe is perfect for us. You’ll need just three ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

Mix your ingredients, roll out onto a cookie sheet. Criss cross a sugar dipped fork on the top of each cookie, then bake approx 7-9 minutes at 350 degrees.

I love to add my own twist sometimes by tossing in some chocolate chips, preferably white. I once found some chips that were a white chocolate-peanut butter swirl, but I haven’t been able to locate those for a while- they were by far the best.

Recipe makes about a dozen good-sized cookies, or two dozen smaller ones. Perfect for movie night or just a treat for the kids when they get home from school.
