|Peanut Butter Cookies 3.0 (flourless)|
This cookie is very sweet and a bit crumbly. The recipe doesn't contain any flour and can be made with only 3 ingredients (sugar, PB, and an egg). My husband declared this cookie his favorite, saying it wasn't the same as mom's, but it was still pretty good. I found it almost too sweet and a little gritty from all the sugar, plus I'm sure the calorie count is through the roof. Just try not to eat more than two in a sitting (and make them small).
This recipe is a great one to make if you don't have any special gluten free ingredients on hand (or if you're looking for a dessert to make for a gluten free friend). It's quick and easy, and it's a guaranteed hit with anyone who likes peanut butter.
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Peanut Butter (regular or just peanuts/all natural kind - and make sure there's no crumbs!)
1 tsp Vanilla (optional)
Cream together sugar and peanut butter.
Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Roll into 1-1 1/2 inch balls with hands and press down a bit with a fork.
Bake at 325 for around 12 minutes.
