I do not bake cookies a lot. I probably like savoury snacks more than sweet ones. This one, though, is one that I really like, and if I am in the mood to bake cookies, this is most often the one I make.
I love peanut butter and these cookies are mostly peanut butter with the other ingredients just there to bind and form it into cookies. What's more, there are only four ingredients, 2 measures of each. Read it once and you'll memorize it instantly. Mix, shape and bake. Isn't it great?
The recipe comes from Woman's Day but I omitted some of the ingredients: the chopped peanuts and the chocolate ganache. I just wanted simple lumps of peanut butter and nothing else to distract my enjoyment.
2 c. smooth peanut butter
2 c. light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsps. baking soda
Pre-heat the oven to 350° F/ 180° C.
Beat all of the ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and blended. (The light brown sugar may be replaced with 1 cup each of white and brown sugar.)
Drop level tablespoonfuls, 2" apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Press gently with a fork.
Bake, one sheet at a time, until puffed and golden, for about 10 minutes. It will still be slightly soft when cooked but will firm up after cooling. Leave in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
