Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe in a Christmas Cookie Cookbook about 8 years ago. Since then, I have misplaced the book, but the recipe is soooo simple that it's still one we make every Christmas. It's certainly a great year round recipe and perfect for kids to help with!

Here's what you need:

1c. peanut butter
1c. granulated suger
1 egg

That's it! You can double or triple the recipe for bigger batches. The 1-1-1 ratio makes about 30 cookies (1 tsp. sized).

Cook at 350 for about 12 minutes. One note: you'll need to press down the cookie because it does not spread.

A few of our favorite variations include rolling the cookies in sugar before putting them on the cookie sheet, adding a Hershey Kiss, and mixing in chocolate chips. Some things I haven't tried yet but I think would be lovely and yummy are a candy coating drizzle or dip, using chunky peanut butter, and adding sprinkles.

What would you add to this super simple recipe?

And by the way, I intended to have a picture for you, but these cookies were eaten so quickly I never had a chance. I'd say that's not a bad thing altogether. :-)

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.)

Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do).

And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole truth…
