Flourless Peanut Chocolate Cookies

Semi-sweet chocolate chips

 During one of the busiest times of the year I thought I would post one of my simplest recipes.  It is a no fail cookie recipe that requires very little ingredients and can easily be whipped together if you need a dessert on short notice.  A wonderful lady in Auburn, AL  gave me the recipe after letting me try some she had just made.  She and her family  thought they tasted a little like reeses peanut butter cups.  They can be made even if you don’t have the chocolate chips to add in, though according to my husband Larry they are better with the chocolate.  You could even omit the chocolate chips and press a hershey kiss in the center of each cookie when you take them from the oven, then let cool completely.   

1 Cup Peanut Butter

3/4 Cup Sugar

1 Egg (lightly beaten)

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Stir together all the ingredients until well combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

With moistened hands, roll dough into balls.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake just until cookies are golden and puffed.  12-14 minutes.

Cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet; transfer to rack to cool completely.
