Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I don't know where this recipe originated, but I've always called them Home School Cookies and have been making them for over a decade. A friend who home schooled brought them to a band concert our kids were performing in and they were a hit! My kids absolutely love them and they are so easy you can make them with young children.

Flourless, four ingredient, Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 whole egg
1 tsp baking soda

In a medium bowl beat peanut butter and sugar.  Add egg and baking soda and mix well.

Roll the dough into small balls (about the size of a 1/2 dollar) and place on a greased cookie sheet (I spray mine lightly with Pam.  Flatten each cookie with a fork using a criss-cross pattern.  You can dip the fork in sugar before doing the criss-cross.

 Bake at 350°F degrees for about 10 minutes or until you see them golden brown at the bottom. Cool 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. 

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies. You can double this easily as they should disappear rather quickly.
