I love the simple ingredients: no other explanation is necessary. Good thing they are easy to make, because they disappear quick!
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- Coarse sea salt
Place the racks in the upper and lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until well combined. Spoon onto ungreased baking sheets (or lined with silpats) in 1 tablespoon scoops about 1 inche apart. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies.
Bake until golden around the edges, about 10 minutes, switching the position of the sheets halfway through baking. Transfer to racks to cool.
Makes 18 cookies
