Peanut Butter Cookies

I have to give a shout-out to my mom for this recipe.  I remember her making these for us when I was a little girl.  They are, in my opinion, the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had.  I love them, because they are so simple and require only three ingredients.  I cannot tell you how many times I have whipped up a quick batch of these cookies for a late night snack when I had a sweet tooth after dinner.  As a college student and now as a stay at home mom, I have loved the fact it only has three ingredients.  Even if my cupboard looks like Old Mother Hubbard's, I usually can always find what I need for these cookies.  So, I hope you love them as much as I do.  Even if you don't, it is a great and simple recipe for a thrifty budget.


Peanut Butter Cookies
1 c. crunchy peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg

Mix all of the above ingredients together.  Scoop out dough by tablespoons and roll into 1 inch round balls.  Dip a fork in a glass of water and press down on the cookie with the tines of the fork.  Turn the fork to the side and press down again on the cookie to make a criss-cross pattern on the top of the cookie.  Repeat the process with all the cookies.  Bake at 350 degrees on ungreased cookie sheets for 8-10 minutes.  Be careful not to overcook.  The bottoms of these cookies can get dark quick if you cook them too long.  Recipe makes about 18 cookies.  

"For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer."  1 Timothy 4:4
