EASY Peanut Butter Cookies

Hey Guys,

I saw this recipe by Paula Deen on the Food Network awhile back and was really excited because I LOVE Peanut Butter cookies!! I don't make them often because they take more time than I usually have. But these are delightfully easy! FOUR ingredients is all you need...that is my kind of recipe! Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Magical Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet. With a fork, dipped in sugar to prevent sticking, press a crisscross design on each cookie. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with some of the remaining sugar. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

The original recipe that she made was actually Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches. I just used the cookie recipe because it looked so simple, but if you are feeling a little more decadent you can go here for the entire recipe!
