I have made these before. I’ve actually made them without the vanilla and they come out just fine. I have seen this recipe with 1/2 t. baking soda added to it, or a pinch of salt too. I suppose you can play around with it. Dairy, Soy (with the right PB), and Gluten free! I imagine they are corn free too, though I don’t know that much about corn ingredients. I think I’m going to go make some with the extra crunchy Skippy natural that we bought by accident! Plus I happen to know from myfitnesspal.com that if you make 24 from this recipe they are only 80 calories each!! Yum yum!

1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a large baking sheet (or roll cookies in sugar before baking)
In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon.  Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet.  With a fork, dipped in sugar to prevent sticking, press a crisscross design on each cookie.  Bake for 12 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

  1. Thanks for posting! Made these today and they are yummy! I didn’t have Vanilla Extract in the house so I used as little bit of Karo Syrup, and it worked great. Thanks again!
