Cookie Friday: Flour-Free Peanut Butter cookies




These peanut butter cookies are the best, and the worst. Seriously. They're amazing, but I have no self-control over them (as you can see above, Stinky loves them, too). These are modified from Paula Deen's Magical Peanut Butter Cookies

Flour-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar, plus a little extra
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond flavoring (vanilla is fine, but almond is so much better)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients well, and place rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Press a criss-cross pattern into each cookie, and sprinkle some sugar on top. Bake for 12 minutes, allow to cool slightly before removing from pan. Yields 1 dozen.
Edit: It's better to undercook these slightly, than to overcook them. Cooked too long, these get very crunchy and dry.
