Flour-less peanut butter cookies

I am a big fan of peanut butter. These cookies were the perfect treat for me after a long day of handling a temperamental toddler. As she was napping, I sat down with a cookie in my hand and bit into the soft-and-chewy cookie and my mood was immediately elevated! Since this recipe calls for no flour, the cookie has a rich peanut flavor and a creamy texture. So perfect!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup creamy peanut butter (I used GIF)
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Stir together peanut butter and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended.
  3. Grease a baking tray.
  4. Roll dough into golf-sized balls.
  5. Place the dough 2 inches apart on the baking try.
  6. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned.
  7. Let cool on baking tray on a wire rack 5 minutes.
  8. Transfer to wire rack, and let cool 15 minutes.
  9. Store in an air tight container.
  10. Note: I refrigerated half of the dough for 30 minutes before shaping it into golf-sized balls. For the refrigerated dough, the cookie was a little chewy and firmer. For the dough which I shaped without refrigerating, the resulting cookie turned out very chewy and crumbly.
