I’m not sure if you’ve realized this, but I’m a little bit of a peanut butter fiend…I mean behind OREOs it’s my biggest craving! (I recently combined those two when I made those peanut butter dirt cake trifles, remember?!)
These cookies are exactly the recipe you need when you get a crazy peanut butter craving because they only require 4 ingredients and I can almost guarantee you that you already have them all in your kitchen right now! Plus, bonus-they’re gluten free!! Any recipe that can have me eating warm cookies in less than twenty minutes is a winner in my book. If you are gifting these cookies I recommend chilling the dough for about an hour and then rolling into balls before putting that classic fork crosshatch impression as they’ll have a little bit better finished appearance.
