Serves: 14 cookies
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  3. Add the peanut butter and salt, mixing well to combine.
  4. Scoop out 1 teaspoon of the batter, and use clean hands to roll into a ball. Place on the prepared baking sheet, pressing down to flatten. Repeat with the remaining batter, leaving ½-inch between cookies.
  5. Bake on the center rack in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling for at least 10 minutes before serving.
