Day 21 – A Recipe

One of the first things that I learned how to cook was peanut butter cookies. My Aunt Charlotte taught me how. I think that I was younger than twelve years old at the time.

Here is the recipe that I remember.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the cookie sheet or spray it with Pam.


1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all of these ingredients together until they are well blended.

This is the part that gets a little tricky, thanks to my memory issues. I can't remember if you are supposed to use a teaspoon or a tablespoon to measure out the dough for each cookie. So, do whichever you wish and adjust the cooking time accordingly. :)

Roll the dough for each cookie into a ball and place on the cookie sheet, not touching each other. Using the tines of a fork, flatten the cookie ball a little and press a criss-cross pattern into it.

Bake for about 10 minutes, but watch closely, because if you used a teaspoon for the measure, they will cook faster than those measured with a tablespoon. Plus, some ovens are hotter (or cooler) than others, even when set to the same temperature.

Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or two before you remove them for further cooling.
