Fourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I've mentioned before the numerous peanut butter lovers in my life. They're easy to please, but I like trying to find the ultimate in peanut butter awesomeness. These were a good effort, but I was hoping for a chewier cookie than I got from this recipe. They were rich and the peanut butter flavor was intense, so if you have as many peanut butter lovers in your life as I do, you may want to give them a try.
flourless p-nut (6)


1 large egg
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg and sugar until well combined. Add vanilla extract, baking soda, and peanut butter and mix again. When well combined, stir in the chocolate chips.
flourless p-nut (3)
The mixture will be a bit crumbly, but press together with your finger tips and drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and bake for 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool for two minutes on the cookie sheets, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 32 cookies.
