#363 - 4 ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (easy)

I've never been a huge fan of peanut butter cookies, not sure why. But, I tried these flourless peanut butter cookies since there were only 4 ingredients (ok, 5 ingredients if you count the 2 types of sugars).

We really liked them and they are so easy to make.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies (yield 24 cookies)

The Gourmet Cookbook via Joy the Baker (I made some small modifications to the directions, see below)

1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter

1 cup sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar)

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet (I don't think I did this). Combine sugars, egg and peanut butter (it will seem runny at first) until well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Add baking soda and mix for another minute.

Roll into walnut sized balls and create a criss-cross pattern with a fork. (Baby O loved doing this!)

I added jelly to some of them, but I liked them best without the jelly.

Bake for 6-8 minutes (Joy cooks them for 10 minutes, but I like my cookies on the gooey/soft side), until lightly browned.

Enjoy! Note - they do break apart easily, but since I undercooked them a little, they mostly stayed together.

Sound good. I think I have made them before but it has been a while. I love to do the imprint with the fork too!
