Last night while we watched the total fail-fest that was the 82nd Academy Awards, I developed a serious sweet tooth. Tonight is grocery night, so needless to say we had little in the house to work with. Then I looked in the cupboard and remembered that I nearly *always* have the makings of some delicious cookies at my fingertips, and I would be gratified in no more than 15 minutes.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup white sugar
Combine all ingredients, form into 1" balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. The dough will be a smidge runny, so if that bothers you - stick it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up. I'm warning you, though - that's just more time getting between you and warm, kick-ass cookies.
Fancy it up (pinkies out!) by pressing a fork over the dough balls until you have a lattice pattern. Bake for about 13 minutes at 350, let cool for 3-5 minutes, and enjoy the hell out of them. Yields about 16 cookies, which Mr. FvF quickly enjoyed a "gentleman's eight" of.
