I seriously love peanut butter. By the spoonful, on toast, in baked goods of all sorts. There’s just something wonderful about peanut butter.
The not-so-wonderful thing about peanut butter is the calorie and fat content. Since I’ve been sticking to my Weight Watchers plan for the last two months, my love for PB has been sadly neglected.
After a particularly rough sleepless night, the cravings were hitting hard. I had a pretty empty pantry, and not much time before I talked myself out of a sugar fix. I grabbed the jar of peanut butter from the cupboard, went to take a heaping spoonful, and noticed something. There was a recipe on the back of the jar…possibly the simplest recipe I’d ever seen.
Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever
1 cup peanut butter (not the natural stuff)
1/2 cup white sugar
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Roll into twelve balls, place on a cookie sheet, and bake in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes. Let cool as long as you can stand. As good as these are straight out of the oven, they get even better as they cool.
