This week, Thomas has been begging me to bake. So, finally, I agreed that if he would be my photographer, I would bake up some peanut butter cookies.
I love peanut butter, and this recipe is super super easy. I think I finished these cookies faster than any I've ever baked--the process took less than 45 minutes total.
First, soften the butter.
Next, mix the dry ingredients.
Blend together the butter and peanut butter, then add the sugars.
Add the egg.
Next, gradually add the dry ingredients.
The dough will be fairly sticky, and should form a ball.
Scoop the dough in 3/4 inch rounds onto an ungreased baking sheet, then gently press it down with a fork.
Sprinkle the raw cookies with sugar (I used sugar in the raw) and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.

Cream softened butter and peanut butter. Add sugars and egg. Gradually add dry ingredients. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet an inch apart. Flatten the cookies slightly with a fork, then bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F.
