A deliciously chewy and delightfully flavorful peanut butter cookie with no flour.
By Erica Scime
My grandma used to make peanut butter cookies all the time when I was a kid. They were soft and chewy and melted in your mouth but, best of all, my Grandma’s peanut butter cookies had a fancy fork pattern on the top. For a while now I have been working on a peanut butter cookie of my own. I have wanted a cookie that was as delicious as my Grandma’s but with perhaps a bit less sugar and flour. (If there is a plate of peanut butter cookies in front of me I’m going to eat the entire thing. At least they should be decent for you, right?) I have made all kinds of peanut butter cookies but, at long last, I have found the perfect one. These peanut butter cookies have no flour and only a bit of sugar and yet they are as soft and chewy as the one’s my Grandma used to make. Oh, and they even have the fancy fork pattern.
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- ¼ cup of brown sugar
- ¼ cup of white sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Stir together the peanut butter and sugar until well combined.
- Now stir in the egg and baking soda.
- Place walnut-sized balls of the cookie dough on a greased or lined baking tray. Press them down with a fork. Bake in the oven for about ten minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
