Crunchy peanut butter makes the cookies very nutty, but use smooth peanut butter if you prefer it. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes if you like them soft in the middle, or for 20 to 25 minutes if you like them crisp.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
Set the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cut up the butter in a bowl. Add the sugar, and cream them together until fluffy. Add the peanut butter, flour and egg; beat everything together with the wooden spoon until the dough is smooth.
Put teaspoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet. Bake them for 15 to 20 minutes. Put them on a wire rack to cool using a spatula.
