The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever!!

At work we have food days every so often and this past Wednesday we had one for Administrative Assistants Day – because ours is awesome!! School would not run without her. Anyway, I decided to make a Hummingbird Cake. Unfortunately I took it out too early and it caved. You know what I mean. So I decided I would also make cookies. I found these cookies on food.com. It just calls for peanut butter, sugar and an egg. I thought it needed something other than plain white sugar. Plus I can’t imagine a peanut cookie without … brown sugar of course!

Start with…

Cookies 003

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

I put all the ingredients in a bowl

I then used a fork and mixed it all together. I kept wondering if this was going to work.

Finally I took a small amount, rolled it into a ball and then rolled it in additional white sugar. I cooked it at 350 for about 12 minutes. And guess what? It worked!

They are little soft when they first come out so be sure to let them cool. Of course if one does break …

… then you have to eat it. I know, it’s a shame. I got 22 cookies out of the recipe. Took it to work and brought home an empty container! Always a good sign. They are definitely sweet and go great with a glass a milk.

If you try them, let me know how they turned out for you. hope you like them too!
