Gluten Free Goodies

20 Dec

Lots of people are going gluten free, so desserts can be tricky in room where half the people won’t eat goodies with wheat flour. My friend shared this super easy and really yummy cookie recipe with me. And who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter?!  They were such a huge hit at Thanksgiving, I’ll be making them again for Christmas!


Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by spoonfuls onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 12 to 14 minutes or until puffed up and slightly browned. Cool on the baking sheet for about 4 or 5 minutes, (They will most likely fall apart if you skip this step) then transfer to wire an allow to cool.
