A reader sent me this recipe a little while back and to be honest, when I saw it I thought she had left something out. How could these turn out with no flour in them? I could understand the lack of butter or shortening because of the oil in the peanut butter, but no flour? So, I finally got time to make them and they were wonderful. I couldn't believe it. These are perfect to make with your children or grandchildren also because of the simplicity. You can add things to the basic recipe to jazz it up if you want. I added a cup of peanut butter chips, just because that 's what I had, but you could add chocolate chips, nuts, or M&M's...wouldn't the kids love that? These are perfect for those who need gluten free recipes or can't have dairy products. Here is what you will need.
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Optional add ins (I used peanut butter chips)
Mix all of it together to the point that you can scoop it and roll into a ball. Roll into a ball about the size of a small walnut and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
With a fork press a crisscross pattern on the top of each one. You will need to wet the fork in warm water after each cookie. You can sprinkle the tops with a little more sugar, or not. It's up to you! Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Don't over bake or they will get too hard. This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.
