Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are very simple and very quick to make, but they are still delicious.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350°.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I prefer using reusable silpat sheet liners) Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. Beat in the baking powder and add the egg. Mix until it is all well combined.

Using your hands, roll the dough into small balls (size is your choice, but the smaller cookies stay together better).  Roll the balls in some extra white sugar and place on the baking sheet – the cookies will spread, but not too much.

Bake for about 10 minutes. When the cookies are done, they will still be soft, but shouldn’t look or feel doughy. You will know the cookies are done when they feel coherent, but still a little soft. Take the tray out of the oven and let the cookies rest for at least five minutes. Carefully transfer them to a cooling rack for 10 minutes or more.

If you want to add something extra, gently press a hershey kiss in the top of each cookie as soon as you pull them out of the oven.
