The Recipe for Those Peanut Butter Cookies

Here’s the really simple recipe for the peanut butter cookies I briefly fretted over last night. I believe I got it out of a Weight Watchers magazine, but I’ve been making them by heart, so the proportions may be off from the original.

Quick Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar plus extra for dusting
About 2 Tbsp flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Add a little more powdered sugar if the mix is too soft, but be careful not to make it too crumbly.

Roll about a teaspoon at a time into small balls (I can fit about 16 on a regular baking sheet) and flatten gently with your thumb or a fork. Bake for 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and let them sit on a baking sheet for about two minutes. Place on wire racks to finish cooling.

  1. I’m going to make these right now. If they turn out well, Derek will probably tell you about them on Thursday. Thanks for the recipe!
