Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

In a Kitchenaid Mixer with the Paddle add:

1 ½ cups Peanut Butter
1 Cup Crisco
1 ¼ Cups Brown Sugar
1 ¼ Cups White Sugar
6 Tbl. Milk
2 Tbl. Vanilla

Cream until well combined. Scrap down the bowl

Take 2 eggs and whisk gently
add the eggs to Peanut Butter Mixture and beat well

In a Medium bowl using a wire whisk Mix:
3 1/3 Cups Gluten Free Flour (***See Foot Note ***)
1 heaping tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 ½ tsp. Salt
1 ½ tsp. Baking Soda

(If your not on a Gluten Free Diet use All Purpose Flour and omit the Xanthan Gum)

Add the flour in thirds to the Peanut Butter Mixture. Mix well. Scrap down the bowl

Pre-heat oven to 375*
Line 2 cookie sheets with Silpat Baking Mats
If you don't have the mats place the dough on an Ungreased Cookie Sheets

I used the Pampered Chef Cookie scoop to measure out my cookies evenly

Take some of the Gluten Free Flour and place in a small bowl
Dip a Fork in the Flour and make a Criss/Cross pattern on each cookie

Bake until Golden Brown 9-11 Minutes
Cool for 2 minutes before removing from the cookie Sheet

Cool completely on a Wire Wrack.

These cookies freeze well in a zip-lock bag in a Container.


You can use the recipe below for home made Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix

Gluten Free Home Made Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, cakes, quick breads and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.
