Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

These are one of the quickest cookies I make and I have no notion where I got the recipe, it was scribbled on a piece of paper.

They are very peanut buttery, so you could add some flour to ease that but I like them like this at times.

When you roll the ball, you can criss cross them gently with a fork, but you don’t have to.

You do however, definitely, have to give them time to cool on the cookie sheet.  Otherwise you will have crumbs!
