Ok so if you like peanut butter cookies you MUST try this simple 4 ingredient recipe. I whip them up all the time for my boy--when we are craving something sweet this hits the spot!

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

Preheat oven to 350. Put sugar in mixing bowl and PB on top and mix together. Then add egg and vanilla. Mix until well blended.

Roll in 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with fork.  Bake for 8-12 minutes on top rack, depending on your oven. Remove from oven, let cool for 1 minute and remove cookies to wax paper. Enjoy!

i know it is really the simplest recipe ever! it's hard to believe that such a simple recipe with such few ingredients would make such a delicious cookie!

when i found the recipe in  a cookbook it said it made something like 3 dozen i think? but i have never gotten it to make that much. I roll it in about 1" balls and i'd say it usually makes about 2 -2 1/2 dozen. I put about 4 rows of 3 per cookie sheet and bake the two sheets at the same time.

I made this cookie recipie yesterday. Delish! I used a combo of honey and Splenda instead of the sugar, and I thought it turned out excellently. Did anybody else eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches as a child? My husband claims to have eaten peanut butter, honey, and pretzel sandwiches.

I also didn't add the vanilla, due to the fact that I don't actually have any. I've noticed vanilla in tons of recipes, but I never put it in. What's it for? Just flavor?

mmmm, and the best thing about them is that they're gluten free--a must for me. i've made these a lot. try reducing the sugar just a tiny bit and putting in chocolate chips. very nice.

I use the splenda for baking in them now & they taste just as good!!

Yes! I actually had it on graham crackers...mmmm....

Yes vanilla adds a great extra flavor!! Once you try something with vanilla, you will notice a difference!!

I told you that you'd like it! actually started making them this way in home economics and forgot about the recipe and then came across it again a few weeks ago in a fundraiser cookbook that i purchased.

As far as the honey and peanut butter sandwiches, that is so funny that you said that, because a coworker was JUST telling me yesterday about how he loves pb and honey sandwiches on wheat bread. he swears by it and said that it is the best when you put it on wheat and toast the bread before spreading the pb and honey on. i went to try it yesterday morning for breakfast but my honey was crystallized  and i was running too late to mess with it, but i'm going to try it this weekend.

For the record i am obsessed with peanut butter. i usually eat pb on toast for breakfast and lots of days bring pb or pb and j sandwiches for lunch. lucky for me pb is one of the FEW fattening things that are actually pretty good for you!

What did you use with the honey and splenda?  I was thinking of doing that too.  I just love peanut butter and honey sandwiches on whole wheat fresh bread.  I grew up eating that for lunch at school.  LOL!
