Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

Still having computer issues....yup.  It really is one of those impossible situations because I feel like technology has me hostage.  I wish I could be like my aunt - no cable, no computer, no internet access.  Life is so much more simple that way.  Most of us believe there's just no way we'd survive, however, I believe I could adjust.  For the times I'd get bored, hey here's a novel idea - read a book......and not on the kindle, an actual hard cover book!  Some days I feel as if I'm a 92 year old stuck in a "30 something" body.  Then I remember all the fun things on the internet like Pinterest, Foodgawker, Facebook, etc. and I fall into the technology trap all over again.  Oh well....I guess it's best to embrace and accept it.

For a long time I have been determined to make delicious peanut butter cookies with as little ingredients as possible.  These cookies are super simple to make and require zero flour - that's right, NO FLOUR!  Yahoo!  Wish all cookies could be flour-free.....hey, maybe I should make that a goal.  Anyway, you'll love them as much as I do (husband loved these too).  How can you not - they have no flour!  Haha

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp baking soda
Turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Add the peanut butter and sugar to a large bowl and stir to combine.  Add the vanilla, egg  and baking soda and stir to combine.  Take a tablespoon and scoop the dough out and into your hand.  Roll into a ball then place on cookie sheet.  Repeat until the dough is gone.  With a fork, press gently onto each ball of dough to make the criss-cross marks, but don't press too hard.  Sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top of each ball of dough, then place cookie tray in oven.  Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes (if you make 12 cookies, it may need 14 minutes to cook).  

Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing the cookies to cool on a wire rack.  Makes 12-14 cookies.
