Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies are a Classic Baked Good, and every Baker should have a Great Recipe to rely upon. These are Soft, Chewy, and Moist, and come together in minutes with just Four Ingredients. No Flour makes them a Gluten Free Treat!
In case you haven’t already picked up on it, I’m kiiiiiiiiiind of a cookie lover. You might even say, “connoisseur.” I have strong opinions on what I think a cookie should be. And baking them (and eating them), is one of my favorite things to do. I wouldn’t be the least bit sad if you told me I could eat nothing but cookies from now until the day I die.
Peanut Butter cookies are no exception. So rich, and satisfying, and hearty! I love their sweet/salty flavor, and they stand up so well to all sorts of add-ins (more on that later ;)).
I have tried a lot of peanut butter cookie recipes, and quite honestly, most of them have fallen flat. Ok, if I’m going to eat a peanut butter cookie, I want it to be soft (!), and thick, and moist, and creamy textured, and intensely peanutty, almost coating my palette with that sticky peanut buttery unctuousness.
My sincerest apologies for using the word “unctuousness.” So pretentious, I know. I hate that word too but you have to admit, it is descriptive.
Back to the recipe, shall we? This is maybe the oddest cookie recipe I have ever seen. You’re not going to believe it, but I promise you it’s not a typo! There is no flour in these cookies.
Which makes them, yes, Gluten Free. I promise you won’t miss it though.
I’ve had this on an index card in my old-school recipe box for probably over ten years. It’s titled “Mom-Mom Fritch’s Peanut Butter Cookies.” I have no idea who Mom-Mom Fritch is! Mom-Mom Fritch, if you’re reading this, drop me a comment so I can give proper credit! I did a quick google search to see if I could find the original recipe, and it seems lots of other bloggers have gone before me here, so I’m not really sure who did it first. However, what I do know is, these are my all-time FAVORITE peanut butter cookies, like, EVER. You gotta try them, people.
If you’ve been popping over to read this blog for very long, this post may perhaps seem a little out of the ordinary. Maybe you’ve noticed I typically like to experiment with unusual flavor combinations? Ya, this maybe is more straightforward that my usual recipe post. Well, stay tuned, because in my next post I am going to do something really crazy-delicious with these cookies! Mark my words, this flavor combo is going to sound a bit different, but you are really going to love this idea, because it’s so surprisingly delicious!
