The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

These cookies are so simple to make that you’ll swear you’re forgetting something.

1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips or raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 325F. Combine ingredients and roll into small balls. Place on a cookie sheet and flatten with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes.

I found this recipe on the back of the kraft peanut butter container, and when I first read it I was a little skeptical. I mean, no flour? No baking powder?  Could it really be that easy? Well I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My recipe has some slight modifications, with less sugar and the addition of chocolate chips. Bennett liked the chocolate chips a lot, actually much more than he liked the cookie, as you can see by this photo I snapped of his cookie:

Yes, he picked out all the chocolate chips and left the cookie, but the rest of us enjoyed our whole cookies. I used Kraft smooth peanut butter this time, but I’m curious to try it with natural peanut butter or almond butter to see if that would work too.
