These cookies have been making the ROUNDS on the internet and Pinterest especially. I wasn't all that excited to try them because I have a fantastic peanut butter cookie recipe that I love and cherish, but I needed a snack for the kids today and I'm out of flour. I KNOW! How can I be out of flour? It amazes me too.
I looked up the recipe and used this one from Joy The Baker.
They are very tasty and so simple that my 8 year old made them, with a little help form me getting them out of the oven for her. (Side note: how nice is it when our kids start to get old enough to really want to do things by themselves? I get so much pleasure out of seeing them learn that they can do it! It's amazing.)
The recipe is simple:
1 cup peanut butter (I used Walmart brand, and it worked out perfectly)
1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 white 1/2 brown)
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix it all up, make some dough balls, press them down with a fork and bake at 350 degrees until they are slightly brown.
BOOM! That's it.

You know you want to make some, so go ahead. I'll be waiting for you to come back and tell me how good they are :)
