It’s not time for Christmas cookies yet or anything, but these classic gluten free peanut butter cup cookies have been on.my.mind. Maybe it’s because all my children seem to want to talk about is Halloween, and the drug and grocery stores are packed with little mini candies. And anyway just look at them. A peanut butter lover’s dream!
The cookie is soft and tender, and packed with peanut butter. Baking with peanut butter tends to make cookies crunchy, but using just a little bit of peanut butter in the dough was not an option. If we’re gonna make peanut butter cookies, they’d better taste like peanut butter. It’s okay. Rebalancing the other ingredients to keep the cookies soft makes it all better.
