After yesterday’s “blizzard”, today seemed a perfect day for paperwork in my home office and some good old-fashioned, snow-day goofing off.  The goofing off part included making some wonderful peanut butter cookies that are flourless and gluten free… I mix in chocolate chips for 1/2 of the dough.

Recipe below – enjoy!

GLUTEN FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup super chunky peanut butter
1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Mix in chocolate chips. Using moistened hands, form generous 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie into ball. Arrange on 2 ungreased baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.

Bake cookies until puffed, golden on bottom and still soft to touch in center, about 12 minutes. Cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; cool completely.
