I had SEVERE reservations when my wife first ininflicted these on me, but they are WONDERFUL! And easy to make!
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Shape dough into 1" balls.
- Place 2" apart on an ungreased baking sheet, and flatten in a criss-cross pattern with a fork.
- Bake 8-10 minutes at 350°.
I have been using this recipe for quite a while and have made quite a few variations on it. They always come out great! I am just pulling some out of the oven that have added 1/4 teaspoon of butter extract and also some chocolate chips. These are the peanut butteriest tasting peanut butter cookies that you can make so if you are a fan, do make these. I found that the sugar can be increased or decreased without any ill effects so feel free to make them a little sweeter or a little less sweet as your tooth dictates. This recipe can easily be doubled, too. I am a cookie glutton so I usually get about 10 cookies from this recipe (I make them quite large). One thing, though...these are the only cookies that I make that I grease my cookie sheet. They do stick a bit when taking them off of my cookie sheet and because they contain no flour, they are a little fragile until they set up a bit while cooling.
These are super delicious even if i screwed up :D I split the serving size in half but forgot to split the egg because it seems too messy and i also forgot to fork cross it down so i zapped it in the microwave for 2 minutes until the centers were done and they came out perfect and my boyfriend had them for breakfast :p lol
I got 24 cookies, not 18 = 90.75 calories per cookie. :)
