Sometimes you need a cookie. Not a box of them or a whole bag, but just one.

This quick little recipe is best with the ordinary supermarket brand peanut butter and is not nearly as good using the expensive freshly ground kind!


  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter - use Jif, Peter Pan, Skippy and NOT the freshly ground or natural kind
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda Granulated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons whisked egg - crack egg into a cup, whisk to blend, use a measuring spoon and chill remainder for another use


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Blend together the peanut butter, Splenda, and egg until the mixture begins to change texture, dry slightly and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Shape into a ball then using the palm of your hand, flatten the ball into a 1/2 inch thick disk.
  • Using a fork gently press downward to make criss cross pattern over the entire cookie which should be about 3 inches across.
  • Bake in preheated oven 6 to 8 minutes. Do not overbake!

Enjoy warm.
