Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

So it's late and earlier I was craving something sweet. One problem, there is nothing, and I mean nothing in the pantry. I was playing with this website that allows you to enter what ingredients you have, and inturn it tells you what recipes you can make. Up popped Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. Sounding a little too easy, I ran to my "Busy Woman's 3 and 4 Ingredient Recipe Cookbook". If this was for real, then it would be there right? Yes, and there it was! So off I went to gather the four things I needed, and in no time I had myself some delicious cookies. I even used the natural "Smart Balance" peanut butter, and it seemed fine. Oh, and it was crunchy, too. So feel free to try whatever peanut butter you wish, and enjoy!

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a bowl, mix the sugar and peanut butter with a hand mixer. After blended, stir inthe egg and vanilla. In one inch balls, place dough on a greased cookie sheet about an inch apart. Use a fork to slightly flatten each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Let cool, remove and store in an air tight container.
