Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

It's been a long time since I posted an entry.  The reason?  I have been working on finishing my Doctorate in Naturopathy.  I am happy to report that I am officially done!  So now I can return to the kitchen to bake some treats for my family. 

The request this week was for peanut butter cookies.  I have made the the flourless kind and they are good but these are better!  Today my children had Hot Chocolate made with raw milk and organic chocolate and warm peanut butter cookies.

1/2 Cup Organic Cane Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Organic Butter, room temperature
1/2 Cup Organic Peanut Butter (creamy)
1 Free Range Egg
1 1/4 Cup Gluten Free Flour Mix
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt

Cream the butter with sugars, and egg.  Add the peanut butter to the mixture and blend well.  In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.  Slowly add the flour to the butter mixture and blend until a play dough like consistency. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Roll the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet about 3-4 inches apart. 

Bake for 9-10 mins.  Cool on the baking sheets for a minute and then transfer to cooling rack. 

Makes 2 dozen cookies (depending on size)

Enjoy and be well,
