My mother found this recipe online the other day. We made them today. What is so unbelievable about them is that they only have THREE ingredients!! As you know I am a fan of flour (I even grind it), but these cookies are soo quick and easy and for those of you with wheat and gluten issues, these are flour-free (not to mention no butter, baking soda, and whatever else most peanut butter cookies call for--so they are CHEAP too). You'd never know that anything was missing, and the three ingredients are ones most people always have (unless you have peanut allergies:(). How's that for an introduction?!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg


Mix, roll into balls and flaten with a fork or glass, bake at 375 for about 13-15 minutes, and voila!

(I'm guessing you could do this with dark chocolate dreams, but I don't have enough right now...soon...)

These cookies remind me of how in life we are told that we need so many "ingredients" for things to go well with regard to schooling, parenting, or whatever, then eventually we find out all of that "stuff" was unnecessary. We only really need a few key ingredients all the rest is merely superfluous.

I made those last week with the neighborhood kids. They were a bit crumbly.
