4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies {gluten free}

I'm a huge fan of peanut butter.  Peanut butter cookies, pie, ice cream, candy, etc...  Even straight out of the jar.  When I found this recipe I have to admit that I was skeptical.  Only 4 ingredients (5 with chocolate chips)?  And no flour?  No way!!  Ohhhhhhh YES!!  These easy treats are my new favorite peanut butter cookie recipe.  And my gluten-free-eating hubby can even enjoy them.    

Makes about 20 cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar (+ extra sugar for sprinkling)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
**can add 1 c. choc. chips if desired, I couldn't resist

1.  Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl.

2.  Roll dough into 1" balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

3.  Use the tines of a fork to press the cookie flat and create the criss-cross pattern.  Sprinkle with extra sugar.

4.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until the edges become golden brown.

  11. These cookies are awesome! Very crumbly when freshly baked but after sitting in the container on the counter for a couple of days they are perfect. I kept some dough aside, rolled them and have them in the freezer. I’m sure they won’t be there long… . Thanks for the recipe!
