peanut butter cookies

We got a little hungry for cookies today.

My cupboards are running a bit bare, but I refuse to go to the store. The last time I went grocery shopping, I came home with ring bologna -- because the meat section made me want to throw up. What was I thinking?! RING BOLOGNA. What do you make with that? I digress. I'm waiting for a nice stomach-settled evening to restock...so no other unusual items find their way into my home.

So back to the cookies. We were playing a game called Cookin' Cookies, and I just got hungrier and hungrier for cookies. Any kind of cookies. Then I remembered this awesome recipe for peanut butter cookies I had gotten a few summers ago from a friend. (Hi, Kathy!) It requires just 3 ingredients...all nearly always in my cupboards.

My son helped form little balls and then press them with a fork. Some were squished REALLY well.

Here's the recipe:

1 cup peanut butter (creamy, crunchy, organic, processed, whatever)
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Mix together. Roll into balls. Press with a fork. Bake at 350 for 7 minutes. Cool. Eat. Several.

(Best dipped into a glass of milk.)

((I like to chase them down with lasagna.))

I like how you displayed those cookies!
Ring bologna? Cut thick slices and fry them for sandwiches?? Just a thought(while you're gagging)

Those look soooo good. I know what you mean about grocery shopping. Today I told myself, "If you are going to buy impulse items, buy cheese." So I came home with imported parmeson reggiano from Italy, fresh ricotta cheese, cottage cheese and cheddar cheese. I know somewhere in the next week, I will be craving these things...I am sure of it! :)
