Just Four Ingredients!

Dear Mom,
This was a recipe I got from a friend that I met when the Teenager was in preschool!!  We make it A LOT in our house because it is stupid-easy.  Just 4 ingredients.  I'm not a chemist so I can't really explain just how these four ingredients can come together to make the most fabulous peanut butter cookies.  But these are the best. The Best! peanut butter cookies!  Ever!  And every time I pull out my recipe card, I laugh because written on the card are literally 4 ingredients.  And nothing else!
But enough already!

And here is the recipe:
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients together.  Drop by rounded teaspoonful on a cookie sheet.  Press down with a fork to make the fun cross-marks on the top of the cookie!  Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes.
Seriously?!?!  About 2 minutes to mix everything together.
Go ahead!  Impress your family!  Your neighbors!  Your friends!  And then go make some more!

I love anything with 5 ingredients or less! We are definitely making these.

I have been waiting all day for the new recipe!! I have enough ingredients for this right now. Only one egg, but that is all I need. A great cheap January cookie.

the peanut butter makes them a healthy breakfast, yes? Magic!

It's 6.50am on a Sunday morning and I just whipped these up and popped them in the oven. The trick will be to stop the boys from eating these for brunch when they finally get up, instead of saving these for afternoon tea!

The dough tasted delicious... there's nothing wrong with ME having these for breakfast, is there?

I'm so blogging about these!
