So today I thought I would share with you one of my favourite recipes of all time. Simple, easy, and containing only three ingredients, these gluten free peanut butter cookies are a snap to make and are utterly delicious.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup smooth peanut butterAllow peanut butter to soften at room temperature. Lightly beat egg with a fork and add to the peanut butter and sugar. Mix together until dough is consistent. Drop by small spoonfuls onto the baking pan. You do not need to grease the pan because there will be enough oil in the peanut butter.
Bake for 13 minutes at 350°F in the centre of the oven, not near the bottom. When you check to see if the cookies are completely cooked, just look to see if the cookies are slightly browning around the edges. Do not touch the cookies or try to lift them from the pan! You must let the cookies cool on the pan for at least 1 minute or else they will crumble into a sad mess. Once they have cooled, then you can use a spatula to lift them from the pan onto a cooling rack.
Tip: To make cookies that look more uniform, use your hands to roll the dough into small balls before placing them onto the pan. If you look at the pictures below you'll be able to tell which side of the pan I placed some rolled cookies (they're on the right side).
