Easiest Cookies Ever

I love to bake, but I am by no means GOOD at baking. So I often google "Simple *insert dessert* recipes".

Today, I was craving peanut butter, and there's only so many sandwiches a girl can handle. I went to google and found a simple three (three and a half, tops) ingredient recipe for these delicious, soft, fluffy peanut butter cookies. And who knows? Maybe this is a very common world wide recipe and I was slow to catch on.

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of crunchy peanut butter
1 large egg
optional: 1 tsp vanilla

mix it all together, bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes (I ended up with 10-12  for larger cookies) and then cool.

I like my peanut butter cookies chewy and soft, not crunchy or hard like others and these are PERFECT. yum yum yum yum!

But where are the crisscross fork indentations? Peanut butter cookies have to have the crisscross!

the dough was sticky enough when I was scooping it out, didn't want to hassle with crisscrossing!!

Silly Girl! Didn't your mother ever teach you to dip the fork into a bit of flour (but not too much) before pressing the fork into the raw peanut butter cookie? You really need to have a talk with that woman! heehee.
