Nut Butter Cookies

This is another one of those recipes of which there are several variations in my cookbooks, online, and elsewhere. I don't know who created the original recipe, but, thank you!

Nut Butter Cookies

1 cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
Optional: two cups dairy-free chocolate chips, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or a combination
Note: Depending on what type of nut butter is used, 1/4-1/2 t. salt may be needed.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix nut butter, sugar, and eggs in a bowl with a wooden spoon until blended. Add salt if needed. Stir in optional ingredients, if desired. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookie bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
