Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe of the Month-January

Ok, this one is so easy, it's embarrassing to post it...

Peanut Butter Cookies:

1 cup of peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Drop batter by the tablespoon onto cookie sheet. If you used the chunky peanut butter, leave extra room, they spread out a LOT. You can get 16 cookies on a big cookie sheet if you use the creamy peanut butter. Press the tines of a fork into the top of each cookie to flatten them a little.

Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on how hot your oven gets.

Extra special: Don't use the fork to flatten the cookies but, instead, press a Hershey Kiss into the top AFTER they come out of the oven. Don't forget to take the tinfoil wrapper off first!

Yet another idea...make a small thumbprint in the top of each cookie before baking and scoop in a little rounded drop of your favorite jelly. Bake as usual. PB&J cookies! I use seedless raspberry, but if you would use the jelly to make a PB&J sandwich it will probably work.
