Quick & Easy Peanut Butter cookies

This is one of those recipes you make when your kids come home for school with a notice from last week saying 'please donate for our bake sale'...and it is tomorrow. I originally found it on the back of the Kraft peanut butter jar, but i have not seen it there in a few years, so this time i just pulled it from the website. The only picture i could find was from a recipe that they had dunked the ends in chocolate. Here is the basic recipe.

1 cup (Kraft) smooth peanut butter.
1/2 cup sugar.
1 egg.

Mix until well blended. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Roll into 18 balls, drop 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Mash crosswise with fork. Bake 18 to 20 minutes in 325 F oven. 

This recipe makes a moist, albeit a bit greasy, cookie. They keep nicely, to; they do not go rock hard after a couple days. The recipe does not make a lot, though. So if you need plenty, you are better off doubling it. I managed to fit it all in a cereal bowl to refrigerate.

 This is a fast recipe that i recommend anyone try if they are in need of a quick peanut butter or cookie fix!

  1. I have used that recipe. It is amazing with just the three ingredients. I like how you dipped yours in chocolate and nuts...great idea.
