Awesome Peanut Butter Cookies that happen to be Gluten and Dairy Free!

Peanut Butter Cookies –Gluten and Dairy free!

         These cookies are so delicious with a tender yet slightly chewy texture, that is just what I look for in a peanut butter cookie.  They are so quick and easy to make with just four ingredients. If all that is not enough, these delicious cookies are gluten free and Dairy free!
     It is great to have a gluten and dairy free snack for my friends with food sensitivities and especially one that tastes great and that does not require any special, unusual ingredients! But these cookies are so much more than just a GF/DF option; they are one of the best peanut butter cookies ever!!

We tasted these delightful cookies at the Green Palm Inn in Savannah, Georgia. The innkeeper, Diane McCray, baked these cookies during our stay and we enjoyed them so much! She graciously gave me the recipe so I could make them at home.

Peanut Butter Cookies –Gluten and Dairy free!

1 cup peanut butter*
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. Baking soda

Preheat oven to 350
* The peanut butter that people have chosen as the best for this is Skippy Natural Creamy with Honey.

Blend peanut butter and sugar with mixer.
Add egg, slightly beaten and baking soda and mix thoroughly.  You may wish to chill it a bit.
Roll into balls. Place on heavy cookie sheet and flatten or crisscross with a fork.  
Bake for about 10 minutes or until just barely golden brown.   Remove sheet pan from oven and cool cookies on the sheet for a few minutes until they are set and hold together then carefully remove to cooling rack.

I think these are best eaten in a couple days however we have never had any last more than a few days J Delish!
