Yesterday Christine asked me if I loved chocolate peanut butter cookies. Of course I said "YES!" and she drew out three homemade gluten free peanut butter bites. They were absolutely delicious! Christine sent me the recipe and I've included it below.
Peanut Butter Cookies
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegetarian
Whole Foods Market
1 large egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
Beat together egg, sugar, baking soda and vanilla in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment or with a hand held mixer. Beat in the peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips if using.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, pressing lightly with the back of a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly set. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
