Peanut butter cookie recipe

My sister in law gave me this recipe and every time I bake them I get asked for a copy of it! They are so easy and delicious - last week I took them to some friends in VA and while arranging them on a plate I gave a broken piece to little Lily. She's pictured at left hopefully looking for more broken pieces:-) Anyway I thought I would post it on here so anyone could try them - they are also gluten free - those of you who have gluten free family or friends know they can be hard to bake for so this recipe is great for them as well.

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together and roll in balls. Roll the balls of dough in sugar, place on a greased cookie sheet, and flatten with a fork. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Makes about two dozen. Last time I made them I experimented with stirring in chocolate chips, then just placing teaspoonfuls of the dough on cookie sheets and baking. They came out delicious - a success:-)


  1. I can testify these are amazing cookies. I can't believe it's just 4 ingredients and for some reason, they really taste and feel like they have some flour in them. Thanks for making us cookies, Stefanie. We finished them in 2 days. ;-)

  2. I've made these twice now and they're perfect every time!!

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
