These were really good and easy to make-be sure to let the cookies cool on a cookie sheet for five minutes before removing them to a rack or they will fall apart-

This is my trademark recipe that I received many years ago from a friend. My version though is less sugar (1/2 cup not 1 cup) and I add 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, not a minute more!

I am giving this a 5 for several reasons: 1. I only had 1 egg 2. So easy 3. Very versatile 4. I love peanut butter! If you don't love pb these are not for you. The first 9 small cookies I made following recipe. My hub & kids liked, the next 9 I mixed in choco chips, we loved, the last 9 I mixed in even more choco chips & walnuts. Delicious. It's an ice/snow day here in Rowlett, we didn't have school so I am looking for ways to keep the house warm with the oven going all day & entertain everyone with good food. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
