My mom was using this recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies 20 years ago. I’m sure she got the recipe from one of her church or school cookbooks, and they are so delicious, I can’t believe I haven’t made them before!
I became inspired to bake them because our youngest daughter and two precious grandsons are coming to visit today! and you can’t come to Grandma’s and not find some home-made cookies . . . can you?
There are countless recipes on-line for these, but this is the recipe my mom used:
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In an electric mixer, mix together the brown sugar, egg, peanut butter, baking soda and vanilla until well combined.
- Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, place on cookie sheet and press down with a fork.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, rotating and switching the cookie sheets around in the oven, so as not to burn the bottoms.
