Peanut Butter Cookies

Believe it or not, these are made with only three ingredients - peanut butter, white sugar and an egg!! You can have a dozen cookies ready for the kids (and some of their friends) as an after school snack in about a half hour. Dominic, my "taste tester" for the day, requested that I sprinkle some of the cookies with blue sugar. Cathy's Kitchen always accepts special requests from her regular "customers!"


1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the peanut butter, 1 cup of the white sugar (put the other 1/4 cup of the white sugar in a small bowl) and the large egg together with large spoon until well combined. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using a small fork, first dip in the 1/4 cup white sugar and then crisscross the dough.

Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes three dozen.
