For My Favorite Peanut Butter Junkie

If you walk into my parents house on any given night of the week it's highly likely you'll find my dad holding a tub of peanut butter eating it with a spoon. He's done this ever since I can remember. Ice cream for dessert? No. Cake? No. Pie? No thanks. A giant spoonful of PB? YES PLEASE. Now its not really my cup of tea, but whatever floats your boat I guess. I wanted to send some treats over his way and since he does love them so much, I thought I would make peanut butter cookies.

You will need:
1 tub peanut butter (equals 1 cup)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Super easy, right? Right. I made flourless ones so they're quite a bit richer and have more of a brownie consistency than a cookie.

Combine all ingrediants in no particular order in a bowl.

(side note, I doubled the recipe to keep some at home for my other peanut butter lover)
Fold together until batter is combined completely.
Roll batter into small-ish balls and roll in sugar.
Your oven needs to be at 350 degrees and these need to bake for 8-12 minutes. I baked mine for 12- the first batch that went for 8 were a little too doughy.
So, Dad, keep your eyes peeled for the mailman. He'll be delivering these guys to you no later than Wednesday!


  1. They were/are so yummy! Dad let me have a bite.

  2. I made these and they were yummy! The boys ate them all. Yours look better though...
