I have been using a variation of this recipe for quite some time. I LOVE the PB&J idea!

Thank you, Simone :-) It's my mom's fav, too. We used to make them like that all the time.

I'm a terrible cook but I love to cook. Once I wanted to be a chef, but I could not attend the class because the tuition fees were very high. I have never made cookies. One of these days, I will perhaps try your recipes.

The best part of this recipe is that it is so very simple to make, so it's a good one to use when first starting out.

I've made cookies from scratch before, but not peanut butter (I enjoy making chocolate chip cookies from scratch).

These look great! I haven't made flourless gluten free cookies before. I always make my gluten free cookies from my regular recipes and substitute a brown rice flour, potato flour, and tapioca starch blend.
