1 cup Peanut Butter (creamy)
1 cup sugar
Place all three ingredients in a bowl. Mix all three ingredients with your hand!!!! Very important, they will not turn out if you use a spoon or a mixer or a fork....I am telling you use your hand! And keep mixing until you get a "good cookie consistency." Roll into 1" balls and place on your cookie sheet. Leave about an inch between, these cookies don't spread too much. once you've got all the balls on the sheet :) create hash marks with a fork. Bake at 350 F for 8-12 minutes. Remove from pan when cool(er) and enjoy. Yeild: 24 cookies (depending on your 1 inch judgement)
I make these for lunches. Because with only 3 people in the house they last about 2 days (just enough time for you to want a different variety). And they are cheap. I mean 3 ingredients. So let me do some math really quickly....
1 c sugar $0.22
1 c peanut butter $.21
1 egg $0.13
So for $0.56 I have fresh homemade peanut butter cookies with no preservatives and I know what's in them. Yes I know refined sugars...(I'm working on that!) and I also know that the peanut butter is also not homemade. But the egg was... so there!
