Peanut Butter Present

When I first started this blog I joined Twitter (follow me here!) to try and get the word out about it. Luckily, I was not alone in navigating the website as I had a great guide in Christine Harding, a fellow 1L at USC Law. Coincidentally, Christine's brother and father are both Celiacs and live in Orange County, so my blog was particularly useful to them.

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
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional)

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.

An egg replacement from Whole Foods can make these bad boys vegan in a jiff!

Hey roomie--why haven't we made these?
