Easy-Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies



Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl whisk egg, sugar and vanilla until well combined.
Using a rubber spatula, stir in the peanut butter (I used creamy) and when it comes together youll have a thick dough.
Stir in the Reeses Pieces or chocolate chips, if using.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto cookie sheet.
Gently press down on tops of balls to flatten.
The cookies wont spread much so you can place them 1-2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly browning.
Remove from oven.
Move cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Cookies will be very dense and very rich.
Makes 18-24 cookies depending on your scoop size and whether or not you use any add-ins.
Other options: 1. Substitute mini chocolate chips or mini peanut butter cups for the Reeses Pieces (Ive done both and theyre delicious) or omit add-ins completely.
2. You may roll dough balls in extra granulated sugar then continue with recipe by pressing gently on dough to flatten and bake as instructed.
