March Break baking project! a.k.a peanut butter cookies

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Recipes and Food

The youngest made cookies today! It’s a great little recipe actually, one that she nabbed right off the back of our jar of Kraft peanut butter:

I used to scoff at this recipe, but it actually works… and it’s the fastest recipe in the history of cookie making! All you need is:

  • 1 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Heat oven to 325F. Mix ingredients until blended. Roll into 1″ balls. Place 2″ apart on a cookie sheet and flatten with fork before baking. Bake 15 minutes until lightly browned. That’s it!

We’ve made this one a few times too, and even used Splenda in place of the sugar. Not bad at all, and very low effort.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
