Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies


I had found this recipe and have had many people give me this recipe.  It’s simple, easy and you should have these ingredients in your pantry!

VERY Simple !!! Who doesn’t have peanut butter in their pantry?  I have been warned to not use the “all natural” kind – you know where you grind the nuts up yourself right there in the store.  Make sure you preheat your oven BEFORE you get started!

I cream the sugar and peanut butter together. In case you don’t know what that means – to cream means to mix your “fat” with your sugar. Generally it’s done in a mixer on medium speed.  You can use a hand mixer if you don’t have a regular mixer.

Next I add my eggs and mix. It doesn’t take long.  Then just form into 2 inch dough balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Take a fork and press the dough down.  Press the opposite way to create that cross sections on the cookie.  Tip: You can dip your fork in sugar if you enjoy a little extra crunch on top.

 

Also you can do a 1-1-1 for ingredients.  This means 1 cup peanut butter, 1 egg, 1 cup sugar.  So even if you are short an egg you can make this recipe!

Summary

These cookies are rich and chewy. If you cook them a little longer you’ll get a harder cookie.

I’ve done these and added chocolate chips – and had Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies – OMG those were heavenly!

I can tell you if you do not tell anyone these are gluten free – they would NOT know.

This is a must have in ANY kitchen! The ease of 3 ingredients makes this a must have recipe in your recipe box – no excuse to not quickly make some cookies!
