Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients
2 cups creamy peanut butter (not the all-natural variety)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions
Heat oven to 350° F.

1.Using an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low and beat in the eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and salt.

2.Roll heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. With a fork, press the dough to a ⅜-inch thickness, making a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.

3. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the edges are set, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Recipe via Real Simple

  1. These look so delicious! And I love how simple they are!

    • Thanks! Super easy, I make them with my 4yr old all the time. Something to note- they spread out a bit while baking so I usually only place 6 on a cookie sheet at a time. And I take them out at about 14 min so they have a little chew to them, the full time gives a nice crisp cookie (perfect for ice cream sandwiches)
