IMG_0763I have to give credit where credit is due, so the “Yummy Award” goes to my baker-daughter who gave me another reason to eat dessert and to Joy The Baker whose recipe she followed. Happy baking, hon!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter

1 cup sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar)

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

optional-M&M’s or chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a baking sheet with butter or line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.  In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes.  Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. Roll into walnut sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork.  If you’d like, add a few chocolate pieces to the top of the cookies.  Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned.  Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes.

Yield: makes about two dozen cookies
