Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter is great for those that are trying to loose a bit of weight. Eating peanuts and peanut butter can help control hunger. Health studies have showed that peanuts and peanut butter have help lower the risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart disease. Alheimer's disease has been shown to be slowed by niacin. Peanuts are one of the foods highest in niacin. Eating five or more servings of nuts or peanut butter per week had a 25% - 30% lower risk of getting gallstones compared to those who rarely ate nuts or peanut butter. 

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir the ingredients together until smooth. Scoop onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. (Roll into 1" balls with your hands, if you do not have a scoop.) Press down with the back of a fork and then press again from the opposite direction, to form the criss-cross pattern on top.

These cookies will not spread at all. You can bake the full recipe on a single tray if you would like. Bake for 12 minutes and then let cool on the tray for 1-2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
