Aunt J’s Peanut Butter Cookies

This has to be one of the easiest cookie recipes I have ever found!  It only has 3 ingredients and is easy to remember, too.  My great-aunt used to make these, and when I need a quick dessert with items I have on hand, this is it!

This is the only recipe for peanut butter cookies I have used for the past 30 years.  Even as a young mother, just learning to bake and cook, this one was super easy with great results!

Because the recipe is so simple, it is easy to double.

Aunt J’s Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

That’s it!

Stir together.  Roll into small balls and place on cookie sheet (lined with non-stick mat or spray).  Press down with a fork to make the design and even out the cookies. Dip the fork in flour if needed to prevent sticking.

Bake at 325 degrees for 5-8 minutes, depending on  your oven.

TIP:  If you want to make a double batch, it may be easier to stir one recipe batch at a time.  Then mix the next batch.  It seems to go quicker, and is a lot easier on the arm muscles!
