Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies
Still having computer issues....yup. It really is one of those impossible situations because I feel like technology has me hostage. I wish I could be like my aunt - no cable, no computer, no internet access. Life is so much more simple that way. Most of us believe there's just no way we'd survive, however, I believe I could adjust. For the times I'd get bored, hey here's a novel idea - read a book......and not on the kindle, an actual hard cover book! Some days I feel as if I'm a 92 year old stuck in a "30 something" body. Then I remember all the fun things on the internet like Pinterest, Foodgawker, Facebook, etc. and I fall into the technology trap all over again. Oh well....I guess it's best to embrace and accept it.
For a long time I have been determined to make delicious peanut butter cookies with as little ingredients as possible. These cookies are super simple to make and require zero flour - that's right, NO FLOUR! Yahoo! Wish all cookies could be flour-free.....hey, maybe I should make that a goal. Anyway, you'll love them as much as I do (husband loved these too). How can you not - they have no flour! Haha ☺
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Add the peanut butter and sugar to a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the vanilla, egg and baking soda and stir to combine. Take a tablespoon and scoop the dough out and into your hand. Roll into a ball then place on cookie sheet. Repeat until the dough is gone. With a fork, press gently onto each ball of dough to make the criss-cross marks, but don't press too hard. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top of each ball of dough, then place cookie tray in oven. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes (if you make 12 cookies, it may need 14 minutes to cook).
Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing the cookies to cool on a wire rack. Makes 12-14 cookies.
