Two weeks ago my friend Alison brought me a plate of cookies to thank me for lending her movies from my DVD collection. I’m not telling how many cookies I ate… I’m also not telling that I licked all the crumbs from the plate.
You will seldom see a recipe on this site because I don’t like to cook; I would rather spend my time, energy, and creativity on projects that don’t disappear 15 minutes after I finish them. I hate to cook but I love to eat. Alison’s recipe fits all my requirements for a good recipe: fast, easy, inexpensive, and yummy. (Healthy doesn’t usually enter the equation.)
Note: not only do I love these cookies but so does the cat; I can’t decide if he’s a really weird cat or these are just really good cookies.
Alison’s 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies: WOWYUMMY
blend: 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg in a mixing bowl
roll dough into small balls about 1″ in diameter (larger cookies tend to crumble)
place 1″ balls on oiled cookie sheet and flatten slightly with fork tines
bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, carefully remove with spatula to plate or rack to cool, makes about 2 dozen small cookies (not counting the 4-5 eaten from the first tray while the rest are baking),
