Happiness Cookies





This had to be one of the most excited days of the year! I discovered in an old church cookbook a recipe for easy peanut butter cookies which unexpectedly did not call for any flour. With a little tweaking of my own, they are fabulous gluten-free choice. I have to confess I ate the whole batch myself, not all in one day of course....

They just look so delicious! And that comforting smell in the house of fresh baked cookies.

Milk and cookies, gotta have milk with mine, especially peanut butter cookies. They were so fabulous, I can't even begin to tell you how good they were. This was the first batch before I had the bright idea to add some chocolate chips.


The Recipe: 1 egg, 1 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar. 
 
Reduced sugar version: 1 egg, 1 cup of peanut butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup honey, 1/2 cup Bob's Mill all purpose gluten-free flour.

  3. Rebecca, I'm not gluten-free myself but have friends who are, so I've done a lot of experimenting with gluten-free baking. I think I've tried every product Bob's Red Mill makes - good stuff! I'm with you - peanut butter cookies call for a glass of milk!
