Recipe: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

At small group last week, one of the members brought some beautiful looking PB cookies. Of course, being the always prepared Girl Scout that I try to be, I took my own little dessert because I can rarely eat the desserts that are brought. But come to find out, I could eat the lovely cookies! This recipe is the bomb! I put a few little chocolate chips on a few because I just felt like it. :-)

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350*.
Beat together peanut butter and sugar in a large bowl until smooth.
Add beaten egg to peanut butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Roll 1 teaspoon of dough into a ball and place on cookie sheet.
Place dough balls one inch apart on cookie sheet.
Flatten with tines of fork making a cross pattern.
Bake until puffed and a golden pale, about 12 minutes.
Cool cookies on baking sheet about 2 minutes and then transfer with spatula to rack to cool.
May be kept in air tight container at room temperature for 5 days.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
Eat with a cold glass of milk.

I won't even tell y'all how many of these I've eaten since they've popped out of the oven. I'm eating for two right?


  1. Well, your recipe says they only keep for 5 days, so you HAVE to eat them all by then, right?
