Farmers Peanut Butter Cookies

Comment on this recipe

In growing older, things of the past have become more important to me. This recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. It started long ago in the kitchen of a farmer. Traditionally, only farmers have shared this recipe, but as our farm lands have dwindled, so have a lot of the old, simple recipes. The passing on of these recipes helps us not to forget the simple things of the past. I would like everyone to share in this old farmer's recipe, and to pass it on to those who will carry it into the future.

Ingredients

1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg

Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well belnded, or about 1 to 2 minutes Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a teaspoon to scoop out dough and form into 1-inch balls. Place on an ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart, and use a 4-tined fork to press flat, making a 2-1/2-inch rounds with a crisscross pattern. Bake until golden, 10-12 minutes. Remove from baking sheets to a wire rack to cool slightly. Using a metal pancake turner or palette knife. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container. Tip: Crunchy peanut butter can be used instead of creamy.
