Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Sugar Cookie

Filed under: Sweets — Ryan @ 8:24 pm

We found this awesome recipe at Gluten-Free Girl.  Why gluten-free, you say?  Those with celiacs disease cannot have gluten in their diet or it can make them very very sick, the goal of sharing this recipe is to show those with celiacs that they can have great food after all… and quite frankly, these are the best peanut butter cookies we have ever devoured.  Yes, we devoured them… plural.

Ingredients:
1 cup peanut butter (we like chunky)
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Cream peanut butter and sugar in good sized bowl.  Beat in baking powder, then add the egg (do not add at same time.)  Mix until well combined.
3. Spray two cookie sheets with non-stick spray.
4. Grab a bowl or dish of white sugar, you will be rolling the cookie in this.  Make tablespoon sized balls of dough and roll in sugar to coat.  Place evenly on cookie sheets.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotate cookie sheets halfway thru.  Let cool for 5 minutes, move to cooling rack.  All set.
