Last Sunday, it was our turn to take refreshments to church. We have a couple families that are gluten intolerant, and I always like to have something for them to enjoy, too. Sweets are so beloved by me, I just hate to think of a little girl only being able to eat a banana while all the other children eat cake or cookies.
So I took a break from rice krispie treats and made these ridiculously easy cookies: 1 cup peanut butter, 1 scant cup sugar, 1 egg. That's it. Bake 10 minutes at 350. Makes 12-15 cookies. Easy to increase, too, which I did, six-fold.
A note: they will not look quite done at 10 minutes. They are. Let them sit on the pan a couple minutes before taking them off, and they won't fall apart. They will stay nicely chewy.
(I think next time I will reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup. They are not tooth-achingly sweet, but that really seems like a lot of sugar for a dozen cookies, doesn't it?)
