quick and easy peanut butter cookies
here's a quick and easy recipe for peanut butter cookies. it's typically our sunday night we-want-sweets-but-i'm-not-in-the-mood-to-do-a-lot-of-cooking recipe. it's so easy and only uses three ingredients, nice huh?
these cookies are flourless, so they are a great recipe for gluten-free diets, and just substitute the sugar with splenda or truvia and these cookies are down-right healthy (at least that's what i pretend on sunday nights :)
here's the recipe:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
mix all ingredients together, roll into balls and drop onto cookie sheets. flatten each ball with a fork (you can even dip the fork in sugar for some extra sweetness on top), and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
these cookies are hearty and have a very strong peanut butter flavor, so be sure to serve with a glass of milk!
