The Best Peanut Butter Cookie

You will note, these cookies have no flour. Since I found this recipe I don't make PB cookies any other way. As is, this single recipie doesn't make very many cookies. It is so easy to double, triple..

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

1 c
peanut butter, creamy
1
egg
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
2
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
I put mix in the fridge for about 20 minutes so it will firm up a bit, and return it to fridge in between batches.
3
Make 1-inch balls (I roll them with my hands). Place on cookie sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Criss-cross them with fork dipped in glass of water often.
4
Bake for about 10 minutes until bottoms are a golden brown. Cookies are fragile when they are hot. Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then remove with a spatula onto wax paper to finish cooling.

Tip: The easiest way I have found to measure peanut butter is to use a glass measuring cup (I use a 4-cup). I put 2 cups of water into it then drop the peanut butter into the water until the water rises to the 3-cup mark for one cup of peanut butter or to the 4-cup mark for two cups. Pour off the water and the peanut butter will fall right out of the cup. No scraping the cup and very little waste.
