I found this recipe in a Christmas cookie cookbook about 10 years ago. Since then, I have misplaced the book, but the recipe is soooo simple that it’s still one we make every Christmas. It’s certainly a great year round recipe and perfect for kids to help with!
Here’s what you need:
1 C peanut butter
1 C granulated sugar
That’s it! You can double or triple the recipe for bigger batches. The 1-1-1 ratio makes about 30 cookies (1 tsp. sized).
Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. One note: you’ll need to press down the cookie because it does not spread.
A few of our favorite variations include:
• Rolling the cookies in sugar before putting them on the cookie sheet.
• Adding a Hershey’s Kiss after baking.
• Mixing in chocolate chips.
Some things I haven’t tried yet but I think would be lovely and yummy are a candy coating drizzle or dip, using chunky peanut butter, or adding sprinkles.
What would you add to this super simple recipe?
Merry Christmas and happy baking!
