No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies

Yep, you read that right - no flour peanut butter cookies.
These cookies are melt in your mouth good! And only call for four ingredients!
This recipe has become my go-to for making pb cookies. I bet it will become yours too.




No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies
recipe from The Starved Writer
makes 3 - 4 dozen

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of your favorite peanut butter - smooth or chunky
  • 1 cup sugar - 1/2 cup white & 1/2 cup brown
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir peanut butter and sugar together until well mixed.
  2. Mix in eggs and baking soda. 
  3. Place walnut sized balls of cookie dough on baking sheet. Press down with a fork. 
  4. Bake 10 -12 minutes. 
  5. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes BEFORE transferring them to cooling rack! After the 2 minutes place on cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy! 
**Notes
  • Don't worry that the dough looks really thin before you add the eggs and baking soda. Once you mix them in the dough thickens up. I promise! 
  • I've made these cookies several times and have used a mix of sugars or just one or the other, depending on what I had on hand. Every time they've turned out delicious and I've never noticed a difference in their flavor. The only difference is when you only use white sugar the cookies aren't as chewy and are more on the crispy side.
  • Instead of pressing the dough down with a fork for the classic pb cookie look you could roll the balls in sugar and press down with the back of a glass. 
  • For a little extra treat drizzle melted chocolate over them once they've cooled a bit. Or push a Hershey Kiss in the center before baking. M&M's/Smarties are also good additions and kids love them!
