Baking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a large bowl at medium-high speed, beat the egg, butter, and vanilla together until creamed and well combined, about 4 minutes.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the contents of the jar, on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out balls of dough roll into balls, place on the baking sheet 2 inches apart then flatten the balls slightly.

Bake for 11 to 12 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if they look like they might not be completely cooked. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes… then eat & enjoy!
