Peanut Butter Snaps

Its time for Secret Recipe Club again – I love being part of this fun club! My favorite part of the SRC is assignment day – I love when I get that e-mail in my inbox with the link to the blog that I get to choose my recipe from. I also love that all of my assignments have all come from blogs I have never been to before, it’s really a great opportunity to find some fabulous bloggers out there and some delicious recipes. If you are not familiar with exactly how this club works, you can stop by the website and learn all about it – maybe even join in! Basically you are (secretly) assigned a blog to checkout, browse through their recipes, choose one to make and blog about it. It’s a lot of fun!

I took last month off because I was crazy busy with my sisters wedding stuff and end of the school year stuff.  But I am back doing some SRC stuff!  This month my assignment was Secrets from the Cookie Princess – What a great assignment to come back to!  I am now a follower of this fabuous blog.  There were so many recipes to choose from and so many that I can’t wait to go back and make, like ALL the banana bread recipes!  It would appear someone loves banana bread as much as I do.  And my intention was to attempt her Crockpot Banana Bread  (I will definitely revisit this at a later date) but the kids are home from school and they love to help in the kitchen.  Oh and they love peanut butter!  We had all the ingredients in the house for these Peanut Butter Snaps so we went ahead and whipped them up.  And tomorrow – we will be whipping up another batch.  They were really really good and really really simple. My kids actually made this recipe not me – well I did the scooping but they did all the mixing….enjoy!!!

recipe from Secrets of the Cookie Princess
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda

Beat together the peanut butter, egg, sugar and baking soda until well combined.  Line 2 cookie sheets and drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the sheet (you can make these as big or as small as you like – they don’t spread too much.)  Flatten the cookies a bit.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes and then rotate and switch the cookie sheets.  Remove from the oven and let cool.
