national peanut butter cookie day

Last week, during our stretch break at work (Yes, exactly what it sounds like.  A break where there is trainer led stretching for ten minutes), I found out it was National Peanut Butter Cookie Day.  It made me laugh.  I came home and told my Beloved.  He asked very sweetly if he could have peanut butter cookies. 

Peanut butter cookies are not high on my list of favorites.  He enjoys them but I think there are a few others he likes better.  They are the easiest cookie to make gluten free.  I find the hardest thing is if you are silly enough like me to bake them on a cast iron pizza pan, is keeping on eye on them so they do not burn!

Note:  If you use a more pasteurized then I did, you can actually roll them into balls later and put the cross hash in them.  Even maybe roll them in some granulated sugar.  These not so much.

1 cup old fashioned peanut butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cream the peanut butter and brown sugar in a bowl.  Mix in one egg.  Stir very well.

Drop by spoonfuls on baking sheets covered with Silpats or parchment paper. 

Bake for 15 minutes.  If you need to do a second baking, watch the cookies closely so they do not burn.

So simple.  So yummy.
