I can't think of one "family recipe." Most of our awesome recipes have come from a book, and sure they've been altered a bit, especially once they reach yours truly, but they aren't secret. I have no idea where this recipe came from, but what I do know is:
- It's easy to fix
- It's inexpensive
- The ingredients are almost always on hand
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
Mix those three ingredients together. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll into small balls and press with a fork. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
There you go, that's all there is to it, and they are divine!
