GF Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

 Delicious Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

What to do. The gluten-free chocolate chip cookies were gone, and I like to have some gluten-free treat in the freezer. So, I decided to make peanut butter cookies this time. I have no idea how many calories they have, but I do know that I needed to eat a high protein dinner, for lunch pretty much consisted of peanut butter cookies. Don't tell anyone.

Next month I'll be making Christmas Stollen and freezing it.  Must get the ingredients soon.

Peanut Butter Cookies - Gluten Free Recipe:

1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. regular Crisco shortening
1 1/4 c. light brown sugar
3/4 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 T. vanilla

1 c. fine rice flour
1/2 c. potato starch
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1 t. baking powder
3/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

Cream wet ingredients. Add (mixed) dry ingredients and mix well.

Form into walnut-size+ balls. Place 2-3 inches apart on cookie sheet. (I use heavy jelly roll pans and get a dozen cookies on each.)

Bake 350 degrees for 12 minutes. After taking them out of the oven, let them cool on the cookie sheet before removing them. I baked the first batch at 375 for 10 minutes, but they didn't get done enough or dry enough for me.

The first photo includes a few of the cookies that I pressed with a fork before baking.

Of course, you can also use this recipe to make Hershey peanut blossoms. To do so, as soon as the cookies are out of the oven, press a Hershey kiss into the top of each one. Who doesn't like those, right??

This batch made 2 1/2 dozen 2 in. cookies. The full 2 1/2 dozen did not make it to the freezer, however, in spite of my good intentions.

These are very good, and are more like peanut butter shortbread. SO tender!

Are they extra crispy with rice flour? I tried some crackers made from rice flour and they were the worst.

We, esp. my husband, are huge fans of peanut butter. These cookies must be very tasty.

Another hit - they look great. I am sure they taste great too. I like that they are gluten free.
Boo to you!

I love, love, love peanut butter cookies and don't make them nearly as often as I should... I think you may have inspired me to bake this weekend :) The cookies look perfect!

These cookies are so fabulous, I am glad to hear your freezer will be re-stocked. I just might have to come and visit!!

Heidi said...

Peanut butter and gluten-free! Perfect. Your cookies look fabulous (in fact, I'd love one right now). I'll have to settle for Halloween candy.

I’d love it if you linked this up at my weekly Gluten-Free Monday party on I hope to see you there.

Peanut butter cookies have protein, so as far as I'm concerned you had health food for lunch. The rest of us aren't judging; we're just jealous ... :)

Robin said...

They look so yummy. I hope you had one with a nice cuppa.

laurie said...

I won't tell! Eat as many as you like...they sure look good!
