~~A Gentle Hint~~

Look what I found on my kitchen counter this morning. An empty cookie jar...I guess this is a gentle hint my honey would like some sweets.Okaaaay, I think I'll make Peanut Butter Bliss Cookies...they are delish. This is BJ's recipe and it's so simple...three ingredients, that's right just three.
Here is the recipe: ~~1 cup peanut butter...~~1 cup sugar...~~1 egg~~,while you are gathering your ingredients preheat oven 400 degrees.

Wisk the egg, add the peanut butter and sugar and mix to combine. You don't even need your mixer...I just use a wooden spoon. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Press with a fork dipped in sugar to make crisscross. Carl likes his cookies larger so I use a little more than a teaspoon. Bake 9 to 10 minutes.....this recipe may be doubled too.
Here you go honey.....xoxo,enjoy. These are so yummy I hope you give them a try. Have a sweet weekend. Hugs, Linda

Hi Linda, the cookies look yummy! I could not believe just 3 ingredients. This is great for the times of the economy! By the way, how I wish I could be part of your stitch along. It always sounds like such fun and I just love the beautiful threads! Blessings, Kathleen

Hey Linda, What a super easy recipe and one I will definitely try ..... with super chunky peanut butter. I am sorry I confused you with the vintage seashell doll. The one you saw sold a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to remove it. I listed the "new" one today that I found at the beach. She has blond hair. :) Check her out. Also I give a 10% discount to my blogging friends. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. The weather here today is blissful. ~ Lynn
P.S. You know I never make cookies except at Christmas. Dh has been away and will arrive home tonite. I think I am going to go make those cookies right now as a welcome home surprise for him.

Linda, these cookies sound great, simple and quick to make, they look cute in the jar too! Never tasted peanut butter cookies, as I am not a lover of pure peanut butter, but I like the reese's beanut choc bars! So hope to give them a try!
