Peanut Butter Cookies

I know what you might be thinking: "She takes this long for a post and all we get is Peanut Butter Cookies?!"

For one, I know I have been gone awhile but please bear with the sporadic posts, life should calm down soon. We close on our new house next week so we should be moved and less hectic I hope!

Secondly, these are not just any old Peanut Butter Cookies. These are fabulously easy, cheap and FLOURLESS cookies that have perfect texture and are seriously so, so yummy. I will never make Peanut Butter Cookies with flour again. Never. Really.

After baking, mmmmm......

In other news, since we have been packing and cleaning to move, school has been a little, well ~ disorganized, but the one thing that has been consistent, weekly, is our new Geography supplement.

The History Channel has been running a new show called How the States Got Their Shapes. It is all about exactly that: what formed the United States of America? I call it geography because it is all about the geography of the states but really, it is also US history. I am working on a study guide for it in fact. I highly recommend the show!

Anyway, here's the simple cookie recipe!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1/2 cup creamy GF peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chunky GF peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Mix all ingredients very well. Drop by rounded tablespoon (or small Pampered Chef scoop) on a nonstick pan. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. LET THEM SIT for a couple minutes before removing them to a flat surface to cool. They will be very soft while warm but cool to a perfect texture. Resting, right out of the oven.....

Careful, they are addictive. I had 24 in this batch. Within a day they were gone.
