3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

     In a hurry or in need of a last minute treat? These peanut butter cookies are fast and use just three ingredients! They are also flourless — an option for those following a gluten-free diet.
     Barry’s mom, Fern West, made these cookies often. This is her recipe; it only makes about a dozen cookies but can easily to doubled . . . or tripled. Throw in some chocolate chips if you are so inclined (but I am a peanut butter cookie purist so will omit them in mine). 
P.S. - No, they are not as good as Ken's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies . . . but they will do in a pinch!

Peanut Butter Cookies        About 1 dozen cookies
1 egg
1 cup peanut butter (with nuts)
1 cup granulated sugar

1.     Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly spray or line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2.     In a mixing bowl, beat egg lightly. Then stir in the peanut butter and sugar.
3.     If time allows, chill dough a little while and then make into balls about size of walnut; place on prepared cookie sheet, press down with fork creating a criss-cross pattern.
If time is at a premium, drop cookies onto prepared cookie sheet.
4.     Bake about 8 to 9 minutes – be careful not to over bake. Cookies should still be soft and barely brown on the bottom.
5.     Let them rest of the pan 5 to 10 minutes until they begin to firm up; then remove to a cooling rack.
