52 cookies :: week 3 :: flourless peanut butter

52 cookies

we first discovered these cookies when we were trying to pinpoint e's food allergies and were eliminating wheat. since then we have discovered that it was not gluten as we suspected - but yeast. and that we can manage it through careful planning.

they have remained in our rotation. sometimes augmented with chocolate. sometimes - this week - without.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
based on recipe via Joy the Baker
from The Gourmet Cookbook

1 c all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter
1 c sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar)
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined. Add egg and baking soda and mix for 2 minutes. Roll into walnut sized balls, squish with a fork (k's job!) and place on prepared cookie sheet. If you’d like, add a few chocolate pieces to the top of the cookies. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool & enjoy.

Makes about two dozen cookies

52 cookies

K: Nice design and very good taste. Yyyyyyyyuuuuuummmmmmmmmm!!!!!!! Ggggggggggoooooooooddddddd!!!!!! I asked her to make it so that is what she did!!!!!!!!!!!! Peanut butter cookies rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

E: (who is just getting over a nasty stomach virus...) But u just baked them today !!!!!!! Fine. They were good and peanut buttery. Mmmmm :)

D: Your peanut butter cookie is too mas mucho. But now that I see that it is a flourless cookie, well that explains why it is so very dense. You know I love PB but I have it for breakfast everyday and I just can't be impartial. The kids dig them and seeing them devour them is good enough for me. What's next?xoxo
