I was at a friends house last night, and made these cookies with the kids. This is an incredibly easy cookie recipe, and contains no flour at all…which in my case is a good thing, as lately, I don’t seem to have flour in the house ;)
Peanut Butter Cookies (Flourless)
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cups sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet (or use parchment paper, ungreased).
Combine peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, egg, vanilla and mix well. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts (Okay, I don’t do that with this recipe, as the dough is too sticky. I just drop spoonfuls to the baking sheet. )
With a fork dipped in the reserved sugar, press a criss-cross design on each cookie. (The tell-tale sign you are eating a peanut butter cookie is this design).
Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the baking sheet.
This can be made with Splenda just fine.
I do not “roll these into balls” – they are too sticky. I just spoon them onto a banking sheet and flatten with the fork.
I’ve mixed chocolate chips in with these with success as well.
These freeze quite well – for up to.. hmm.. I have no idea, as they don’t stay frozen long ;)
Add 1 cup of oatmeal
Add 1/3 cup of chopped peanuts
