Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies are one of the most made cookies in my family. These are the first cookies I made gluten free. I will let you in on something. they were not very good. I have had more then my fair share of flops. After failed attempts and a whole lot of reading up on gluten free cooking I came up with these.
Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 cup Shortening
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 3/4 cup White Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 1/3 cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
- 2/3 cups Corn Starch
- 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
- 1 cup Oats
Cream together Shortening, Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, White Sugar, and Eggs
Mix in the rest of your ingredients
Roll a Tablespoons worth into a ball
Roll ball into a plate of sugar
Place on cookie sheet
Wet a fork in a glass of water and press the cookie flat
if you press twice, once horizontal and once vertical you will achieve the classic look
repeat spacing cookies about 1/2 inch apart
bake @350 for 8 min
Take out and let rest for 2-4 min
then place on parchment to cool
They are real delicate when they first come out of the oven so be very careful.
Make sure all the ingredients you use are gluten free.
Live, Laugh and Enjoy!
