Gluten-Free (But Sweet) Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted on
Just three ingredients =
A “PEANUT-y” COOKIE!!

 

 

There are recipes (and many variations)
for these all over the Internet!
You wouldn’t think they could hold
together without flour, but they do!

 

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 2 cups creamy peanut butter (I don’t see why you couldn’t use the NUTTY variety, unless you do not like ‘crunchy’).
  2. 2 cups granulated sugar (some bakers use 1/2 of this amount in brown sugar; others substitute Splenda
    ®).

     

  3. 2 large eggs
  • Some bakers add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to this dough, but I did not.
  • Some put a Hershey’s Kiss into a mound of this dough before baking.
  • Some mix chocolate chips into this dough.
  • Some ???????????????????????????????.
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the panggangan to 350°
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or foil.
  • Mix the peanut butter and sugar well.  I put both into the bowl of my Kitchenaid stand mixer and let it ‘beat together’ (and sort of ‘fluff up’) for about 8 minutes, scraping the bowl a couple of times along the way.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time.  Continue mixing for about a minute.  By adding the eggs, the ‘mix’ takes on more of a regular cookie dough texture.
I used a golf-ball-sized ‘cookie scooper/baller’ thing to scoop up the dough and put onto the parchment lined cookie sheets.  If your cookies turn out like mine did, you can place them quite closely on the cookie sheet because they did not spread out very much.  (I’d say leaving an inch between each should work just fine).  Just before baking, using a fork, I made the ‘traditional’ kind of criss-cross design on their top– if the dough sticks to the fork tines, dip it (the fork) in either sugar or water.
Most bakers said to bake these at 350° for 8-10 minutes.  With my oven, I baked them for 12 minutes.  Adjust baking time according to your oven, but you do not want to bake them until they seem dried out.

 

 

These cookies are really tasty, but…
I suggest that, because
of their sweetness when you use regular
white sugar like I did, you limit these for just a
‘special treat’ when you think
you absolutely HAVE TO HAVE…
something sweet!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
