This has got to be the easiest recipe yet for this wonderful cookie. I call them 1-2-3 1-1-1 Peanut Butter Cookies...1-2-3 because they're so fast and easy, 1-1-1 because of the ease in remembering the recipe ingredients. Don't be put off by the simplicity of it...and despite challenges to the contrary, the recipe works WITHOUT flour.
