Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten Free)

Peanut Butter Cookies

I have made this recipe for years, and this last week I decided to try another recipe for peanut butter cookies. Very bad idea! They were terrible. And guess what that recipe had like 15 different ingredients and all sorts of special instructions. So I will stick to this one. These are my husbands favorite cookies and they are SO easy… only 3 ingredients! And guess what they are Gluten Free!!!

1 C. Peanut Butter (I like the Jif Extra Creamy)*
1 Egg
1 C. Pure Sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Stir together peanut butter, egg and sugar until completely mixed.
  • Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Use a fork or the end of a spoon to squish the balls down a little.
  • Then bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Enjoy! **

* If you are making these gluten free, make sure you use a peanut butter that is all natural (no gluten).

** I always add mini hershey kisses to the top of my cookies when I pull them out of the oven, just let them cool for about 1-2 minutes first so the chocolate doesn’t completely melt.

Makes about 2 dozen

    I made these cookies tonight because they sounded so easy. I don’t know that I’ll ever use a complicated recipe again. When I told Jeff I used your recipe he said your cookies were the bomb. :) And he said these were delicious! So if I can make these while I’m feeling icky and on drugs (and they still taste good), anybody can make them. Thanks Jess! Miss you.
