1/2 c sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/2 c peanut butter
1 tsp molasses
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp coarse salt

In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture.
If you have time, refrigerate for about an hour. If not, or if you are just too hungry, shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press down with a fork if you like to make traditional criss cross pattern.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, cool on wire rack or on brown paper.
Serving size depending on cookie size: total calories for the whole batch is 1792. Divide that by however many cookies you wind up making for the individual count. This is not low fat. 😉
I like my cookies a bit burnt so I leave them just a bit longer. They are so tasty when the are still warm. Depending on how generous you are with your cookie size, this can make about 15 to 25 cookies.
