Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4thcup peanut butter (crunchy or soft, depending on what you prefer)
  • ½ stick butter, softened
  • 1/4thcup water
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 350’C; mix together the sugar and the flour. Make sure that it’s pretty evenly mixed. Then, add the water and the egg and mix well. Make sure not to let much stick to the sides—this will be pretty thick. Then, add the butter and mix more. It should be a little bit softer, but sturdy enough that adding the peanut butter shouldn’t be a problem. If needed, you can pop the peanut butter in the microwave for about ten seconds to help soften it up—however, this will more than likely affect the texture of the cookies. Roll into little balls (if you find that your mixture is too thin for whatever reason, add a 1/4thcup flour more and a few teaspoons more peanut butter until it is more workable) and then flatten slightly with fork. Quick, simple cookie recipes! Don’t be afraid to add peanut butter chips or chocolate chips—however, it’s probably best that you make bigger cookies or run the chips through a blender one quick go before adding them to the cookies. Bake for ten to thirteen minutes, depending on how brown you like your cookies.
