Share a Spoon: Peanut Butter Cookies

I've totally been planning to get this recipe made, and post about it as a Lazy Mom Recipe (my not so successful meme that isn't a meme at all ...). And when I saw that Think Tank Momma was doing a cookie swap this week at Share a Spoon, I had to jump in!

Think Tank Momma

Anyway, I have this book called Busy Woman's Cookbook and there is this crazy simple recipe for peanut butter cookies in there. I don't have it in front of me, but it's that simple that I can give you the gist of it anyway!

Peanut Butter Cookies:

* Peanut butter (1c)

* sugar (1c)

* 1 egg

* vanilla extract (a splash)

Basically you mix the ingredients together (it's a fun experiment to mix the peanut butter and sugar together - trust me!) and shape them into small cookie balls [heh heh - I said cookie balls] and plop 'em on a cookie sheet. Flatten them down and cook at 350* for somewhere between 10-15 minutes. Obviously you need to keep an eye on them. I would check them at 10, if they're not done, come back at 12, and so on. I'm a cookie making freak that way, though.

Oh, and the book does say if you want to make them pretty peanut butter cookies you can use your fork to make that fancy design on top. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Either way, they taste the same ... DeeeeeLicious!

And if you want to find some super simple recipes that have like 3-4 ingredients, and an ENTIRE BOOK of them, go order this book now. It's a lifesaver, I promise. I take so many ideas and tweak them so they work for my family and it's soooo easy and simple and *almost* fun!

So don't forget to head on over to the
Think Tank for more cookie recipes and ideas today. I think I saw pumpkin cookies on that linky ... mmmn. Pumpkin cookies. Happy Baking!
