One of the things I love most about the holidays is baking cookies. Since I hurt my back, I’m not able to bake as much as I like but this year I’ve already baked, and ate, a couple of batches of peanut butter cookies. Actually they are flourless peanut butter cookies. I’ve been trying to do gluten-free for a while now, for health reasons, and I’ve found some great recipes to try. These are the easiest cookies ever and only require a few ingredients, that you probably already have in your pantry, plus they taste great. You’d never know they were gluten-free.
I’ve made these a few times over the past month and wanted to share some things I learned. The recipe calls for 1 cup sugar but I thought they were very sweet so I cut it to 3/4 cup the last time I made them, much better IMHO. I may be daring the next time and try 1/2 cup…I know, I’m such a rebel. 😉 I also tried course salt sprinkled on top before baking and we added some chocolate chips into the batter (at my husband’s request). All were good but I liked them less sugar, no salt and no chips the best. That is what’s great about this recipe, you can change it up and make them the way you like.
What is your favorite cookie recipe? Are you willing to try gluten-free cookies?
