Christmas traditions in most homes include special Christmas treats: eggnog, peanut brittle, fruitcake, fancy cookies, candy canes. For anyone with dietary restrictions, Christmas can be a tough time of year. So as I was browsing my cookbooks recently, this recipe jumped out at me—it’s gluten-free, meaning I could make a treat for some of my friends who aren’t eating wheat.
Mix peanut butter, egg and sugar together until well combined. Add nuts and mix well. Roll into small balls; press to flatten with a fork. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350* F for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Cool on pan before moving to wire rack. When cool, drizzle with chocolate.
Tips: cookies may be frozen. Do not use light peanut butter in this recipe.
(I used unsweetened/unsalted peanut butter, white sugar, and substituted extra chocolate chips for the peanuts because I didn’t have any. I also just mixed the chips into the cookies because I was too lazy to drizzle chocolate on top. These are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, so I didn’t give away all of them. 🙂
This ultimate Penaut Butter Gjluten-free cookie recipe sounds so delicious that I may make it this week. Thank you for this recipe.
What if you use peanut butter with sugar in it? Do you omit the sugar in the recipe?
Hmmm, you could probably cut back on the sugar for sure. A friend of mine halves the sugar in any cookie recipe she makes and they usually turn out great. I heard that most recipes we use today were developed post WW, when sugar rationing was gone and people started using way more than they needed just because they could. 🙂 So cutting sugar back never hurts. 🙂
I’m not gluten free – but those sound amazing!!! THanks for stopping by the blog hop! xx
