An Afternoon with Grandma
One memory, from what seems like eons ago, that I treasure from my childhood is baking peanut butter cookies with Grandma! There was nothing like getting my hands sticky and sweet, filling the house with the aroma of sugary peanut butter and wrapping my lips around the warm creamy cookies. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon with grandma. They are simple to make and not overly time consuming.
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or chunky..however you prefer!
1 cup sugar, plus more for rolling
1. Heat oven to 375F, Stir together peanut butter, sugar and egg in large mixing bowl.
2. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Put some sugar on a plate and roll balls in it to coat. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Press each ball down with a fork to make a crisscross design. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies just start to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool on wire racks.
I usually double the recipe and share with neighbors and friends!
