Operation: Homemade Gifts

When I was younger I would always help my great grandmother bake Christmas cookies, we would make dozens and dozens of cookies for all the grand kids and families. So when the bestie asked me how hard it would be to make sugar cookies for the girl's preschool teachers, I knew she would not have the time or patience to make them and told her to make peanut butter cookies. They are sooooo simple to make and quick too! She has two small ones running around so she definitely needed something simple. I told her to bring the girls to my house since it is like 5 minutes from her daycare so I can give them their presents and teach her how to make the cookies. We made several batches but she still needed to make a few more, I sent home with the recipe and I have all the faith in the world that she will make some killer cookies!

I have known this recipe since I was 9, my great grandmother taught it to me :)

Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup Peanut Butter(I use Jif)  
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 egg

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together, roll in to balls and place on a UN GREASED cookie sheet. Cross hatch the tops with a fork. Bake for 5-10 minutes depends on how large you make the cookies. (You will start to smell them when they are done) Cool. Enjoy. :)
