These are the easiest to make peanut butter cookies I’ve ever made. Only 4 ingredients! Heck you could skip the vanilla and make it 3 if you wanted. Stop what you are doing and make a batch now! You won’t be sorry.
When searching through my recipe boxes I came across this peanut butter cookie recipe. Much to my surprise it doesn’t call for any flour. I was worried it was written wrong so I asked my Facebook page what they thought.
The response was quick and overwhelmingly yes, no flour needed. So many people had made and loved them for years! Phew! I’d had a disaster following a pumpkin bar recipe that grandma forgot to put down flour! So now I’m extra cautious.
Taulara said “These are what my Grandma always made and we still make them. They remind me of being little and visiting my grandparents”.
Brandan suggested rolling them in sugar and then when almost finished pushing a Hershey kiss in the middle.
After such a positive response I was even more excited to try them. Who doesn’t love a good tried and true recipe? I especially love peanut butter cookies so I was ready to get baking.
This is a classic peanut butter cookie recipe that just so happens to be gluten free. Not one of those terrible recipes where they took something yummy, tried to make it healthy, and ruined it. Be sure to share this recipe with your gluten free or celiac friends. They will love you for it! It’s not often something is this good and doesn’t have gluten.
Look how pretty they are! I played a bit with the baking time doing 9 minutes, 12 minutes, and 15 minutes. The ones baked at 9 minutes were my favorite.
The dough is very sticky so don’t worry so much about rolling in to balls. Scoop them into a round shape, roll in the sugar, and put them on the baking sheet. Once they are pressed and baked they look just fine! Even if they were ugly no one cares if cookies look bad as long as they taste good.
A Facebook user suggested leaving them on the pan for a couple minutes before moving them. It was good advice because they want to fall apart if moved too soon.
