easy peanut butter cookies!

I am in the process of baking all my cookies for my mom's annual Cookie Exchange! We make a dozen individually wrapped cookies for each person that is attending the party, and it always proves to be such a fun time!! So I thought I would share the easiest and the yummiest recipe for peanut butter cookies that I will be using this year.. photos of the wrapped cookies will be posted next week! :) Enjoy your weekend!! xo!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)

Combine sugar and egg in mixing bowl, stirring till smooth. Add peanut butter and mix in thoroughly.
Roll into walnut-sized balls.
Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheets at least 2" apart.
Flatten with the tines of a fork.
Turn 90 degrees and use fork again to create cross hatches.
Bake 10 minutes at 375F (or till done). Let cool in pan for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.
