You guys, these cookies are dangerously easy to make! I only had a few minutes to whip together a treat for a church event the other night and these took seriously 30 minutes total (including washing the dishes). Make these. Just do it.
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (optional, see note)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg with the vanilla lightly with a fork. Stir in peanut butter, sugar and flour (if using) until combined. Add chocolate chips and lightly stir until evenly distributed.
Scoop small spoonfuls (about the size of a ping-pong ball) into your hand and roll softly. Place on a greased cookie sheet and press down lightly with a fork dipped in sugar. You can criss-cross it, if you like. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes and let cool completely on a wire rack.
Makes 2 dozen small cookies.
