    Very easy; but, they are much prettier if you roll up in balls and flatten slightly with a fork criss-crossed over top.
    Addendum:
    Today, made w/ reduced fat peanut butter, Splenda brown sugar blend (1/2 cup packed) & an Eggland's egg

    answer to UNICORNDEB's question about using Splenda as substitute for sugar. The answer is YES! I wondered about that.I wanted a reduced calorie cookie. I tried it and it works. I added 1 Teaspoonful Vanilla extract to my mix and my husband says he likes them better than the original recipe! - 3/21/09

    We call these "Poor Man Cookies" and I add 1 tsp vanilla extract, or occasionally .5 cup nuts, raisins or chocolate chips. A GREAT and easy recipe! - 3/13/09

    One of my favorite recipes. I use natural pb and add a 1/4 tsp of baking powder which makes them a little more crunchy. I'm gluten intolerant so these are my go-to sweet treat. - 3/11/09
