One of the best ways to make guests feel that warm Southern welcome is by having a tasty treat or two waiting for them when they arrive.  But more often times than not, guests are unexpected, but don’t fret!  You can whip up these Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies in a pinch!  And they only require three ingredients that you most likely already have stocked in your pantry.

1 cup of sugar : 1 cup of peanut butter : 1 egg

Preheat your oven to 350°F.  Mix the three ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Make balls with the dough and evenly space them on your cookie sheet.  Press a fork into the balls to flatten and to add that classic peanut butter cookie pattern.  Bake for 15 minutes, cool, and present to your guests!

Southerndoe Tip: To prevent cookies from sticking to your cookie sheets lay a piece of parchment paper on your cookie sheet, instead of using oil!
