12 Days of Cookies! Day 1: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s December, and around my house that means the holiday baking is just beginning. Baked goods are always great when giving out holiday gifts, in honor of that I will post a cookie recipe each day for the next 12 days. Most of my Christmas presents this year are homemade gifts. This recipe was given to me by a friend, and to be honest I am not sure where she got this from. If you know please comment and I can add a link. It is quite possibly the simplest recipe I have ever made, yet it yields amazing cookies. I never knew peanut butter cookies we’re so easy to make; you will never want to buy a store bought mix again. Not only are they easy to make, but an added bonus is that they are gluten free as well.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, when thoroughly mixed roll the dough into small balls, about a tablespoon amount of dough. Place the peanut butter balls on a ungreased baking sheet. Pres down with a fork to make the hash tag looking marks on the top of the cookies. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

**Please remember to give the cookies some room on the cookie sheet, see below for how much they spread while cooking**
