Peanut Butter Fix in a Jif!

Peanut butter is like chocolate.  When you get a craving, it won't leave you alone until you eat some!  For a quick dose of peanut butter that will truly satisfy, here is a fun cookie.

Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and so easy to make.  Just don't eat too many!

Peanut Butter Jiffies

1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup corn flakes

Preheat oven to 325°F.  In mixing bowl, beat together sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla, then beat in corn flakes.  Using hands, form 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 15 minutes, watching carefully at the end so as not to burn cookies.  Cool three minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.  Makes 30 cookies, 2 points plus for Weight Watchers or 79 calories each.

  2. Love this idea. I completely agree - there are definite times where you just need to have peanut butter. The cornflakes are an interesting twist.
