Peanut butter buttons by Mama Steph


1 cup smooth or creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For decoration, use colored sugar to roll cookies in, or add sprinkles on top. Or do both! 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place all ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl, and combine with a fork.
When all smooth and uniform, use a small cookie scoop to drop dough balls into colored sugar, then place on cookie sheet. 
Press top of each cookie with fork, then bake for 7 minutes. You can place these very close together on baking sheet, as they don't spread very much.
