My "Go To", Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

We have been in an absolute mess around here for the last few weeks, with colds, which turned into  flues.  Add to that, installing new doors, and what the heck, why not go back to working on our bathroom reno.?!

Just for something to do, of course!

Through all this, our sweets stash got depleted.   So, I thought I would whip up some super simple, peanut butter cookies and drop by to share with you all.  These cookies are truly as simple to make as 1. 2. 3. , because there are only three ingredients in them!

I doubled this recipe, and probably should have tripled it.  When I make cookies, I want my time to count!

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
Makes about 24 cookies

 
 
INGREDIENTS
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
 
DIRECTIONS 
Mix together all ingredients.  Roll into balls and flatten with fork on ungreased cookie sheet.
 
Bake at 325 F for 15 min. (depending on the oven; mine took longer)  DO NOT OVERBAKE.
 
See, I told you these are super simple to make!  They are definitely on my comfort food list.  And with fall in full swing, I imagine most of us are returning to our tried and true comfort food recipes.
