3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

This week's been buzzing.

On Monday, I worked, and we had a playdate.  Tuesday treated us to a 5.8 earthquake.   (Which was super cool, I'm not gonna lie.)  I spent my post-earthquake hours registering the kid for school and standing in line to order her uniforms.  We had a lunchdate on Wednesday, after I worked at the office all morning.  Today, my hubby sent me for a massage in the morning, and it has been raining all day long.

And we have a preety major hurricane headed straight for us.  And the cupboards are bare.   I realized this morning that I better get my butt into the grocery store, before all the panic-stricken shoppers clear out all the bread and milk.

Which brings me to today's post.  The kids are screaming for SNACKS!  (The baby asks for 'NACKS!)  And I have none.  Well, none they want, anyway.

So I decided to whip out the old 3-INGREDIENT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE recipe.  If you have this in your home:

You're all set.

Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, doesn't matter)
1 cup sugar (I use sucanat.  You can also use Splenda.)
1 egg

Mix the ingredients and spoon the batter onto a parchment-lined cookie tray.   (Although I'm sure a Pam'd cookie sheet would work, too).   If you wish, flatten out the cookies with a fork, making a grid pattern. 

 Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes.  (My oven needs about 11 minutes.)  Sometimes, instead of the grid, I make a little hole in the top, and add a Hershey kiss about 3/4 of the way through cooking.

Now try and wait until they are cool.  If you can, you're my hero......
