Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Yield: About 75 small cookies


  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together peanut butter and sugar.
  3. Mix egg and baking soda. Add egg mixture to peanut butter mixture and mix until combined.
  4. Roll level spoonfuls of dough into balls and using a fork make slight crosshatch marks in each.
  5. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Cool 2-3 minutes on the cookies sheet, then on a rack. (Just slide the paper on to the rack aafter the first cooling. The cookies are very fragile when warm.)
