These unorthodox, super-peanutty peanut butter cookies, made without butter or flour, are perfect for those who must avoid dairy or wheat. But they’re great for for dairy-and-wheat eaters, too; these cookies are terrific by any standard (and even better with the addition of chocolate chips). Dizzied notes that they hold together better if you use standard-issue peanut butter rather than all-natural. The recipe is easily doubled.
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix all ingredients together well and chill dough. Preheat oven to 350F. Roll dough into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Use a sugared fork to press a criss-cross pattern into the dough; bake for 9-11 minutes. Let rest on sheet for a few minutes to let firm up, then very carefully remove to rack (they are very delicate until completely cool).
