Easiest Peanut Butter Blossoms Ever!
-preparation time: 5 minutes
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup White or Brown Sugar (Personally, I think brown sugar makes better cookies. The picture above is made with white sugar)
1 tablespoon of white sugar
Candy Topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix peanut butter and sugar together in a large bowl until well blended. Then add the egg. Mix together until well blended. Add vanilla if using. Put white sugar on a plate. Roll into small balls then roll in the white sugar to completely cover the cookie ball. Place each ball on cookie sheet and use a fork to make hash marks on the top, smooshing the cookie down just a bit. Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until brown on bottoms. Place Hershey kisses, hugs, or Reese’s mini peanut butter cups on top (This messes with the Clean Eating portion of the recipe but it’s fun anyways – you can always make your own candy topping).
Note: White sugar gives you a slightly crispier cookie, while the brown sugar makes them softer and more plump.
