GF Peanut Butter Cookies
recipe from Angela from Windy City Knits
What is "GF" you ask? It stands for Gluten Free. It's not some new diet craze or anything, it's a way to eat for people that are sensitive to gluten. I love cookies and peanut butter cookies are my absolute favorite, but as someone who has a gluten sensitivity I had to find a way to make them without the wheat flour. And these are so good, in fact I think they are even better this way. They are quick and so simple to make.
1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter and sugar until well blended. Add the egg, baking powder, and vanilla. Stir until well blended.
3. Pour a tablespoon or so of sugar in a small bowl. Scoop up a tablespoonful of dough, roll into a ball and then roll in sugar and place on baking sheets 1 inch apart. Make criss-cross marks on top of each with a fork.
4. Bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then lay on a rack to cool completely.
Recipe makes about 24 cookies. Store them in an airtight container.
I hope you will give these a try!
