I don’t know what it is about cloudy mornings, but my instinct tells me I should bake cookies. So, Xavier and I scoured the pantry for ingredients and decided on Peanut Butter Buttons. These are the perfect cookies to bake with kids because they are super easy to make and only have 4 ingredients! As we waited the whole 10 minutes for them to bake, Xavier danced around the kitchen singing, “I love Cookies! Oh, I really love cookies!” I love baking with kids!!! J
Peanut Butter Buttons
1 C peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
3/4 t baking soda
Heat oven to 350. Set oven racks on bottom third and top third so you can bake 2 sheets at one time. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using an electric mixer beat all ingredients together until well incorporated. Drop them by the teaspoonful onto the parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 5 minutes, switch pans around, and bake another 5 minutes. Allow them to cool on the sheets for 5 minutes; then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
