Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir the ingredients together until smooth. Roll into 1-inch balls with your hands and place on a paper-lined baking sheet. Flatten the cookies a bit with the bottom of a glass, then press a criss-cross pattern into each with the back of a fork.

  2. Bake 12 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Notes

*Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 
**For the peanut butter, I use creamy Jiff peanut butter or Jiff natural. You do not want to use peanut butter with nuts.
