Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

This is one of my favorite easy recipes. It takes about 15 minutes total, including bake time... and they are very tasty! I had the urge to bake (shocking I know) on Sunday night, whipped these up... had one (ok maybe a couple) and brought the rest into work on Monday. A co-worker popped by my desk mid morning and said "the devil makes you bake!". HA! Well thank you, I will take that as a compliment.

Flourless PB cookies
One cup creamy peanut butter (I use the reduced fat kind)
One cup white sugar
One teaspoon baking powder
1/4c egg beaters (or 1 egg)

Preheat the oven to 350°
Line cookie sheet with wax paper. Fill small bowl with some extra sugar, set aside. Mix ingredients together. This can be tough with the PB so just use a whisk or spatula. Once the batter is smooth, use a teaspoon to scoop batter out.. roll into small ball and then roll in sugar. Place on wax paper. Bake for 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes, then move to cooling wrack... and Voila! They even taste great in the cold... and are a perfect treat to make with kids.
