From way way back, when I was a Girl Scout, we made:

Cuppa Cuppa Egg Cookies

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

Mix, roll into balls, press down and make the criss-cross pattern with the back of a fork across the top, and bake.

(Lets see, I usually add 1/2 tsp vanilla, and sprinkle some more sugar on the cookies before baking at 350 F degrees until done. Maybe 9 minutes?)
