These classic peanut butter cookies are gluten-free.
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
1 cup Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
1/4 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Combine brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; flatten balls in criss-cross pattern with fork. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Delicious and very easy recipe. I also doubled the amount of peanut butter to add more flavour. Light and crispy texture - better than any other recipe I've tried.
Very tasty! A local bakery has gluten-free PB which are crispier than these. Any suggestions for variations to this recipe to increase crispness?
Hi Jean, there are a few things you can do to make a crisper cookie. Have dough at room temperature rather than chilled - the dough will spread more as it bakes producing a cookie that is crisper.
Press the dough down on a greased cookie sheet rather than leaving the drop cookie in a
ball on the sheet.
Bake the cookies 1 to 2 minutes longer than what the recipe states, but the cookies may brown quickly so watch them carefully.
