A FAVORITE RECIPE
Amber Tipton recommends this “super simple recipe” for peanut butter cookies from Gluten Free Girl, Shawna Ahern’s web site.
Flour-less Peanut Butter Cookies
One cup creamy peanut butter
One cup white sugar
One teaspoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl (hand mixing preferred)
Beat in the baking powder.
Add the egg.
Mix until it is all well combined.
The dough will be sticky, so be prepared to get your hands messy. Roll some dough into a ball. The smaller these cookies are, the better they hold together.
Roll the ball into white sugar.
Line a baking sheet, covered in parchment paper, with the dough.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. You will know the cookies are done when they feel coherent, but still a little soft. Take the tray out of the oven and let the cookies rest for at least five minutes. Afterwards, carefully transfer them to a cooling rack. After 10 minutes or so, they will have hardened and be glistening with sugar.
Makes 10-12 cookies.
