Thursday Recipe - Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is easy, simple, and tasty. You may have to adjust the proportions just a bit depending on how gooey your peanut butter is or how dry your powdered sugar is.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 t. vanilla

Heat oven to 375°. Cream everything together. Beat until very smooth, at least 3 minutes. If it feels too sticky, stir in a little more powdered sugar. If too dry and crumbly, add just a teaspoon or so of milk or water. Bake one test cookie to see how far they spread and adjust if necessary.

Scoop out by tablespoonfuls. Place on greased cookie sheet. Use a fork to press down in a criss-cross pattern. Bake 8-10 minutes, just until lightly set. Let cool at least 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Makes 2-3 dozen.
