Gluten-Free Peanut Butter CookiesPosted: June 23, 2013 | |
This is a dangerous recipe because I almost always have all the ingredients on hand to whip up some of these wonderful gluten-free peanut butter cookies. This recipe is also so easy and fairly quick to make. My boys love these cookies too.
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
3/4 cup sugar (white or brown)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup creamy peanut butter (about half a 16 ounce jar)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix the sugar, baking soda, and peanut butter together by hand or with a mixer. Add the egg and vanilla and blend well.
Take 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place balls of dough on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart (I put 12 cookies on each baking sheet). Using the tines of a fork, press down lightly to make a crosshatch design on top of each cookie.
Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 3 dozen.
