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. :-)
