My girls were visiting their grandparents in Maryland last week. So I thought it would be fun to send a tin of cookies midweek to let them know I was thinking about them. I made some Monster cookies and sent half in to a friend at work who has been recovering from surgery, and I kept the other half here to send to the girls. However, when the morning came around to ship off the cookies, most them had disappeared and there were only three left. I had about 45 minutes to whip up a new batch of cookies so I needed to find something that was quick, quick, quick. The Monster cookies will be on here later this month.
This is about the simplest cookie recipe you will ever find….and it’s really good, too. They are very similar to the traditional peanut butter cookies, but they have no flour so they are a bit chewier and almost fudgelike. I liked them a lot.
I whipped these cookies up in no time and had them out the door with time to spare. If you are looking for a quickie cookie recipe that doesn’t sacrifice the flavor, definitely try these. I topped with some M&M’s because I was making them for the girls, but you could decorate with anything your heart desires.
Another bonus with these cookies is that they are Gluten-Free.
I didn’t press mine down with a fork and the recipe doesn’t say to do that, however if you wanted them flat like traditional peanut butter cookies you could press them in a crisscross with a fork. You could also roll in sugar, but I don’t really think they need any more sugar:-)
The girls gave them thumbs up and they said that they tasted like the peanut butter part of a Reese’s. I think that is a good thing:-)
