Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup natural unsalted peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation

In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat together peanut butter and sugar until combined well.  In a small bowl, lightly beat egg.  Beat egg and vanilla into peanut butter mixture. 

Roll level teaspoons of dough into balls and arrange about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet sprayed with vegetable cooking spray.  With tines of a fork flatten balls to about 1-1/2 inches in diameter, making a crosshatch pattern.  Bake cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. 

Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes and transfer with a metal spatula to racks to cool completely.  Store cookies in an airtight container.
