The Nutty Professor Cookies #creativecookieexchange

School is starting up all around me.  My local district is already back in session, and all the districts I worked in as a public school teacher or principal are having Back-to-School teacher meetings.  The beginning of the school year is a fun time for me, even though I don't have a classroom to decorate or new curriculum to learn.  I am fortunate that my day job allows me to interact with teachers. 


Another  opportunity I have is to teach preservice teachers as an adjunct professor.  I absolutely love working with pre-service teachers and it is what I would love to do full time.  I don't think that is in the cards for me, so I will love the opportunity I do have.  My husband is a full time college professor, too, but he works with doctoral candidates who want to be administrators.

These cookies, then, are aptly named.  The two of us couldn't be any nuttier, especially when it comes to our neighborhood.  We love our neighborhood!  We also adore these easy nut butter cookies, too!


The Nutty Professor Cookies

8 oz nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew)
1 egg
1/2 c Truvia

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment.  Put all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well.  Let rest 2-3 minutes.  Using 1 T sized scoop, scoop cookies onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Let cool 5 minutes.  Store in an airtight container, if they las that long!  Makes 1 dz.

Note: When I named these cookies, Mr. Jerry Lewis was alive at his home in Las Vegas.  He has sinced passed away, on August 20, 2017.  Mr. Lewis was an icon to me as a child.  I watched the Labor Day Telethon every year!  I hope that this post does not seem insensitive.
