The World's Best Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies-

Gluten free baking usually takes some improvising and tweeking. This recipe uses the Trader Joe'sPeanut Flour instead of all purpose white flour. These cookies are the sweet, chewy, rolled in sugar, with a cracked shell like outer layer variety.

I dare you to make a batch and not eat more than a single serving. I doubled the recipe and after packing lunches, and filling our cookie jar, there were not many left for sampling.

The Ingredients:

2 sticks butter at room temp.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar, plus extra
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 1/2 cups Peanut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix butter, sugar and peanut butter together on low speeduntil creamy and smooth. Add eggs, then the flour, baking soda and vanilla extract.

When dough is formed,
roll into 1" balls, then roll in granulated sugar to coat, the place them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.Bake at 350°F for about 11 minutes or until the tops are cracked with deep grooves. Cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Then figure out where to hide them from the husband and kids. Good luck with that.

Best peanut butter cookie recipe I've ever had doesn't even use flour. It's 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup white sugar, 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla. My kids devoured them and I don't have to run to the store for anything, I have it all on hand.
