Really easy gluten-free and flourless peanut butter cookies, really simple ingredients, really yummy dough (and finished product!) #peanutbutter

These flourless peanut butter cookies are another recipe I use for making bases for cheesecakes, slices  etc.  Or when I just want a peanut butter cookie.  Or just the dough.  Really, REALLY simple, just have to remember 1-1-1-1 … only problem is if I only need half of the mixture for the base, it’s a little difficult to just use half an egg.  At times like these I just make the whole batch, and usually eat what isn’t required.  Yum!

One variation that I’ve just recently tried is substituting the 1 cup of white sugar for 1/2 cup (90g) of brown sugar.  I also didn’t add the vanilla, but added 1 tsp of baking soda instead (from a combination of other recipes I’d looked at on the internet).  These cookies were SO soft … I think they’ll become my new standard peanut butter cookie recipe for when I want to eat the cookies.  For the base, I think I’ll stick with the white sugar version below!
