These super simple Peanut Butter Cookies, that I found on Pinterest , are absolutely delicious! I’m definitely not the baker in the family and rarely attempt to make much more than a boxed cake for my husbands birthday. However, the cookie jar that sits atop our microwave has been almost begging to be filled- or maybe it’s just me that constantly looks at it and craves a super soft delicious treat. Either way, it was time to find a recipe that I could pull off from prep to clean-up without taking over Reagan’s entire nap time.
If you like peanut butter, have minimal time to spare and are in need of a delicious treat, then this is the recipe for you! According to the site that I found this on, the calculated calories per cookie are around 80. But honestly, who really knows and if your yielding two dozen that will be sitting in a jar in your kitchen, begging to be eaten…who’s really counting????
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup sugar
Add into mixture 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon baking soda and mix until combine.
Roll dough into balls. The size of the ball depends on the size of cookie that you want- the bigger the ball, the larger the cookie. Bake on a cookie sheet for 11 minutes.
Make good use of your time and boil sippy cup parts while your cookies are baking!
My cookie jar is no longer lonely…
