Gooseberry Patch Recipe #8 – Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies!

On Sunday, Mark and I were ushers/greeters for church…and so I thought it would make sense for us to bring treats for our Fellowship Time after church. I decided to bake some cookies, but didn’t know what my second choice should be, since I knew that there was at least one church member who followed a gluten-free diet. (Not that I had to supply something special, but I wanted too.)

And there, in my “Dinners on a Dime” cookbook was the recipe I’ve been looking for! It’s a super easy, super simple peanut butter cookie recipe, minus any flour. And according to my husband, they are delicious! (I’m not a peanut butter fan. I know, don’t throw your Jif at me!)

Anyway, enjoy this simple gluten-free cookie recipe. And it’s very economical (as long as peanut butter prices stay reasonable, but resources tell me that it might go up in the coming weeks/months. Just a heads up!).

Magic Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

Simple as this!

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 t. vanilla extract

Mix sugar well with peanut butter, add remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, until cookies are puffed and golden. Cool; remove from baking sheet. Makes 2 dozen.

Make sure to mix your peanut butter and sugar well...doesn't take long!

My cost analysis for these cookies? Sorry, can’t give you one…I had all the ingredients on hand! šŸ™‚ YAY!

Great cookies, so easy and gluten-free!

  1. My husband and son made these cookies on Sunday for the Cub Scout “Father-Son Bakeoff” that was held last night. No women are allowed to help the dads and scouts in the kitchen for this. Both being peanut butter cookie fans, I gave them a copy of this recipe (which looked very simple) and they did their thing…the cookies were easy to make and tasted great! My guys put one chocolate chip on top of each cookie after they came out of the oven because “you have to have some chocolate!”
