100 Joys ~ #2 ~Cookies!

It's Joy #2!  

During the holiday season I love to bake! And the thing that I love to bake the most is cookies. I'm sure this comes from watching and helping my mom make cookies and treats. I also look forward to trying a new one every year. This year I made flour-less Peanut Butter Cookies! I found this recipe on the Diabetic Living website and knew that I had to try them.  These are making my favorites list and will do them again!  I may not even wait until Christmas either.  These would be great anytime of year.

Can't wait to share more of my 100 Joys with you.  I'm seeing them around me all the time now.  Camera is in hand!  I'd love to have you join in with me sharing our Joys of the Season!  Click on the button above to learn more about it and then come back here on Sunday to link up!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets and set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the 1 cup sugar, the peanut butter, and egg until well mixed. Using your hands, roll peanut butter mixture into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with a drinking glass that has been lightly greased and dipped in sugar. Lightly grease a small star-shaped cookie cutter; dip in sugar. Press into the center of each cookie.

2. Bake about 9 minutes or until edges are set and bottoms are lightly browned. Makes 36 cookies.

MY NOTES: I baked mine for 7 minutes because the 9 minute ones came out pretty dark and very crisp. I like mine to have some softness to them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your peanut butter cookie recipe is exactly like mine, but I never thought of doing the star design on top! How pretty and festive! I'm going to try that next time.

Ohhh these look GREAT! Thanks for letting me know! Would you like to take a day for a feature of these? It would fit right in to my "25 Days of Christmas Sweets"!

I've been making these great cookies for years because my oldest son has Celiacs. Makes me wonder why I ever bothered to put flour in my PB cookies before ;)
