You will need: peanut butter–at least one cup worth, sugar, 1 egg, cookie sheet, shortening, oven to bake cookies, bowl to mix the cookies in, spoon or mixer, measuring cup
Step 1: Grease the pans with shortening while preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Place 1 cup sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, and 1 egg in mixing bowl.
Step 3: Mix the three items together either by stirring briskly with a spoon or an electric mixer.
Step 4: Drop one 1 inch wad or ball of dough at a time on the cookie sheet at least an inch apart on the cookie sheet until it is full.
Step 5: With a fork, press wads ofdough flat into a cookie shape. Two presses should be enough. You can put flour on the fork for easier pressing.
Step 6: Bake in the preheated oven for about ten minutes. The time could be shorter or longer depending on the oven used.
Step 7: Repeat until all cookies are baked.
Step 8: Enjoy! Makes 18-28 cookies depending on size of dough wads used.
To make more cookies, increase the amount of ingredients by about a batch worth.
Do not remove cookies from the cookie pan right away as they will be too soft and break apart easily. Allow them to cool first until they can be removed safely.
