Cooking Idea…
Flourless peanut butter cookies – 1 cup peanut butter 1 cup sugar – 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1 egg. Cream the PB and Sugar add baking powder and egg. Here is the great part the kids can roll the dough into balls – roll them in some sugar to coat then place on a cookie sheet (i lined mine with parchment paper) and mark with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes – let rest on cookie sheet for 5 then cool.
