It's Magic!

I was so in the mood for something sweet, yet I didn't feel like going out to the store to buy anything. After looking through the pantry & discovering I had "almost" everything to make peanut butter cookies, I decided to pull out one of my favorite Gooseberry Patch cookbooks & see what I could come up with. As usual Gooseberry Patch came to the rescue. Page 194 of "Dinners on a Dime" had the perfect recipe....."Magic Peanut Butter Cookies." What intrigued me was the fact that the recipe doesn't call for any flour. So with a sweet tooth in hand & ingredients on the shelf, I thought I'd give it whirl.

Magic Peanut Butter Cookies

1 c. sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
1 t. vanilla extract

Cream together sugar & peanut butter. Mix in remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, until cookies are puffed and golden. Cool; remove from baking sheet.

I love Peanut Butter cookies. I do use Simply Jif though now to make these delicious cookies with less sugar since my husband is diabetic.
