I don't like spending a lot of time on a potluck meal. I think it sort of defeats the purpose.

That is why I have an easy cookie recipe that I like to use.


  • 1 jar peanut butter Equal weight of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • For about 1 cup of peanut butter, if in doubt, round down
  • (Optional) 1 tsp vanilla essence Salt
  • sprinkle a little over just before baking


  1. Beat the egg, mix everything together.
  2. Put onto a baking tray in tablespoon blobs, leaving an inch or more between them.
  3. Bake at 350 f until cookies (the exact cooking time depends on the egg/everything else ratio.
  4. Check after 10 minutes, then every 5 minutes).
  5. Take out and allow to cool
