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 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.
