Amazing Peanut Butter Cookies!

Last night, I broke out an old favorite recipe and made some peanut butter cookies. This is the best recipe I have ever used for peanut butter cookies. Directly from the Queen of Southern Cooking herself, Paula Deen. Here's the recipe!
Magical Peanut Butter Cookies
1 egg
1 cup of peanut butter (try crunchy, smooth, honey)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup of sugar (or 1 and a third cups cups of sugar replacement)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix all ingredients together. Roll mix into walnut size balls and place on cookie sheet. Take a fork, dip it in sugar and press a crisscross on each cookie. Bake for 12 minutes and sprinkle with sugar/sugar replacement. Cool for a few minutes and remove from the pan.

A few tips: I would definitely not overcook these cookies at all. They burn really easily. Also, for fun you can sprinkle colored sugar crystals or sprinkles!

Here is the original recipe from Paula Deen's website.

  3. I am going to try them tonight...maybe even try them with the sugar substitute and see how they taste....I will let you know how they turn out.... :)

  4. They were YUMMY! I used the Splenda/Sugar mix, which only called for 1/2 cup, which was good! :) I will definitely be making these cookies again.
