A "Midnight Snack" At Nine!
The older Mr. P and I get the earlier we go to bed;) Consequently, our "midnight snack attacks" happen earlier than most! Tonight we had a "craving" for a little sweet treat and I didn't have anything that was readily available. What's a girl to do? I went into my kitchen and brought out these four "staple" items (peanut butter, egg, vanilla, sugar) to make a delicious "midnight snack" for us! So, so simple to make but unbelievably yummy. The best way to eat them? Warm out of the oven with a glass of cold milk!
Magical Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all four ingredients together and then roll into balls about the size of a walnut. Put cookie balls on greased cookie sheet and then take a fork and push down to make "criss- cross" design on each cookie. Bake for about 12 minutes. When you bring them out of the oven sprinkle just a dusting of sugar on top of each. Let sit for a few minutes and then get ready for a most delicious treat!
*I need to add that I know that recently there has been a massive recall on some peanut butters. I believe the brands were Skippy and the WalMart brand. Make sure to check that you aren't using one of the recalled brands. Okay, it's off to bed I go!!!
Edited to Add: Thanks to Susan and Deb, they told me the recalled brand was Peter Pan, not Skippy. Thanks ladies!! I hadn't paid much attention to the recall because I'm a Jiff girl;)
