One, one and one....

These are those recipes that you need in your back pocket for guests or gifts that need to have been made... um... yesterday.

We call them:

One, One, One cookies.
1 cup peanut butter (homemade, crunchy, natural, smooth... whatever).
1 cup sugar (raw, brown, white... again... whatever)
1 egg (don't forget this ingredient... see story below)

There are three main ingredients and a bunch of add-in potential.

I added about a 1/4 cup of milled flax seed and about a 3/4 cup of chocolate chips... yum!


I made these for a dear friend, and proudly pregnant-about-to-pop Mama, and forgot to add the egg. The result was tasty but, more like um, moonsand. Though... Sandier. Did you know egg was a binder? Ahem.

So a pan of rice krispy treats saved the day. Another 3 ingredient wonder!

You know her!

Hey... I bet you could use almond butter. A bunch of roasted almonds and a little bland oil in the food processor until the consistancy of natural p-nut butter. (If she's not allergic to almonds) or how bout nutella (if she's not allergic to hazelnuts).

These sound so tasty! For someone as baking impaired as myself, these might just do the trick!
