1 cup nut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
whole or sliced nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
Using a fork or a mixer, beat nut butter until creamy.
Mix in sugar until completely incorporated.
Make a well in the center of nut butter/sugar mixture.
Crack egg into well and beat with a fork.
Mix beaten egg into mixture until dough forms.
Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes.
Roll spoonfuls of dough into walnut-sized balls. Place on parchment.
Press down with a fork dipped in hot water to create a crosshatch design or use nuts to flatten and decorate cookies.
Bake 10-12 minutes in preheated oven, until bottoms and edges are golden brown.
Remove parchment from pan and allow cookies to cool undisturbed for 10 minutes.
Store in airtight container at room temperature.
