Cook Time

Ingredients

1 C organic peanut butter
1 C organic sugar
1 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1 TB organic maple syrup
1 large egg
Coarse Himalayan sea salt (optional)

Instructions

1- Use a medium-sized bowl and mix together the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and egg.

2- Spoon out about a tablespoon of dough for each cookie and place on an un-greased cookie sheet, about one inch apart.

3- Use the prongs of a fork to gently press down and flatten the cookie. Press down again about a quarter clockwise to make what’s called a crosshatch pattern. Optional – lightly sprinkle salt on top of the cookies.

4- Bake for five minutes, then turn the cookie sheet 180 degrees and continue baking. Check on your cookies about five minutes later – they should be golden brown around the edges.
