GF Peanut Butter Cookies

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!
