Breakfast at the Garden Gate Get-A-Way

Due to a health issue with my knee,  I no longer fix a 3 course breakfast, but come to our gathering room to enjoy conversation and our "lighter version" of breakfast, which consists of local breads, fruit, yogurt, coffee, teas and a special goodie of the day.  Be sure to explore some of our delicious local restaurants.  Here are a couple of my recipies that are easy and yummy for you to try!
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Cup sugar
2 Tablespoons extra sugar for the top
1 egg                                                
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Oven: 350
Dump and mix all your ingredients together in a bowl big enough to mix in.  I don't use a mixer, just a wooden spoon.  It should be the consistency of a very thick wet sand.  Roll into 1" balls, place on ungreased cookie pan.  Take a fork dipped in the extra sugar and make the traditional marks on the top of the balls, this will help flatten them and put a sweet crunch on the top of your cookie.  Put into oven, approximately 12 minutes (of course all of this depends on your oven.)  I do check mine half way and actually turn the pan around...my oven does not heat evenly.  Let them cool on a rack when done.  I do think they taste like the old fashioned bake sale cookies.  Do remember:  they may not have flour, but they do have a lot of sugar....just sayin'
