“I Can’t Believe It’s Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies”

Adapted from http://www.emerils.com

Ingredients

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar*
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I’m partial to using chunks instead of chips)
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract

*I used 2/3 cup the second time around just to make the cookies a smidge sweeter.

Directions

Position (2) oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Roll 1 heaping tablespoon of dough between hands to form a smooth ball. Place balls of dough (you should have 24) on ungreased cookie sheets or ones lined with parchment paper, spacing them about 1″ apart. Using a fork, press tines on dough in two directions (criss-cross) and bake 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove with a spatula and let cool on wire racks.

Store in air-tight containers or freeze.
