Hi, A friend of mine e-mailed me a recipe for peanut butter cookies the other day. She absolutely raved about them in the e-mail. Since I had the ingredients on hand - I decided to make them this evening. omg....dreadful!!! They only had three ingredients, so I was extremely skeptical (as my "go to" recipe for peanut butter cookies has at least 10+ ingredients). The texture was a clump of rubbery, gunky nastiness and the taste - oh the taste was nasty - it was like an overly sweetened ball of goop. The thought occurred to me that (maybe) she sent me the recipe as a practical joke (she has a very different sense of humor). So I re-read the e-mail and I'm pretty certain she was serious. This is the recipe: 1 C granulated sugar 1 C peanut butter 1 large egg bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes After wondering about these horrible cookies I decided to google the recipe and see what others thought of them. I was amazed to find that there are HUNDREDS of good reviews on this recipe. So - for those of you who have made these and liked them - what on earth did I do wrong?? The eggs are fresh so it wasn't the egg, and the sugar I just bought last week...same with the peanut butter.
