Peanut Butter Cookies

This is one of my all time favorite cookie recipes they are fast and simple to make. I make these up for the holidays to take to parties, they are a big hit. Also this recipe is kid friendly and they enjoy making these cookies as well, they are fun! 

What You'll Need:
1 cup peanut butter smooth or chunky
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Heat Oven to 375F. Stir together the peanut butter, sugar and egg in a large mixing bowl.

Roll dough into 1- inch balls. Put some sugar on a plate and roll balls in it to coat. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Press each ball down with a fork to make a crisscross design. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies just start to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool on wire racks.

**I also like to make these with thumb prints in them and fill them with peanut butter once cooled. Can also use colored sugar in red, green etc to go with the holidays.
