While eating these I thought; when crumbled, these would make an excellent topping for ice cream or frozen yogurt. Who doesn't love a good cookie crumble? That is, if you have any left...



1 Cup smooth peanut butter  (I used salted Trader Joes brand)

1 Cup white granulated sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1 heaping teaspoon baking soda  



1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

2. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or in a medium sized bowl, place all ingredients in the bowl and mix until smooth.  Using a tablespoon size ice cream scoop or with a spoon, scoop up a small amount of the dough, roll into a ball and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes and let cool on the baking sheet until completely cool. 


Note** when warm, these cookies may crumble so be sure to not move them around too much before they are completely cool.
