While I was doing my usual meandering across the internet this morning…I came across a recipe for Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies at Food Plus Words. Being a huge PB and Chocolate FAN…I was already hatching plans to make them when I noticed that the recipe was actually GLUTEN-FREE. I also noticed it was adapted from a recipe by Gluten-Free Girl. So I clicked on over to her website and found the original Peanut Butter cookie recipe. I knew that if the Gluten-Free Girl said they were good….they were good. I had a hunch about these so I immediately decided to make some. The recipe couldn’t possibly be easier!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup white sugar (I did 1/2 white and 1/2 brown)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 egg
That’s IT! GF girl said that this recipe works best just mixing up by hand with a spoon, so that’s what I did. Didn’t even have to get the KitchenAid out!
Every other step was just like making “regular” peanut butter cookies. Roll into a ball, roll balls in sugar, flatten slightly with a fork and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
The cookies came out beautifully and tasted SO good. They are so tender they melt in your mouth and go GREAT with a cold glass of milk. I may have had 3 (or 4). And now I need a nap………….
