Anyone Can Make These: Plain Peanut Butter

Now for the plain version of the easiest peanut butter cookies ever.  They are a little boring if you just subtract out the chocolate chips so you have to alter them a little.  Do everything as before, make your tablespoon-sized doughballs and then what I do is squish it with a buttered, sugared glass and then do my criss crosses with the fork.  You don’thave to do both, I just like the graininess of the sugar on the outside and I like the nostalgia of the criss crosses.  My mom used to let me do that part 🙂  Take a flat bottomed glass and rub your stick of butter on it, pour some sugar in a bowl, and then dip the glass in the sugar before squishing each cookie. 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 large egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat over to 325 degrees.  Mix egg, sugar, vanilla, and peanut butter until well blended.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Remove from fridge and roll into tablespoon size balls.  Place on cookie sheet a couple inches apart from each other.  Flatten with the bottom of a sugared glass cup and make fork hatches if desired .  Bake 17 to 19 minutes until slightly brown and yummy looking.  Cool on sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack.  Enjoy!
