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 egg
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;)

Hi Susan, Just wanted to make sure you knew it was Peter Pan, but I see that Susan already mentioned that. By the way, we DID have some PP in our cabinet...near the end of the jar! But we are fine and never were sick from it.

Our midnight snack (which also comes much earlier than late night) is popcorn.
