      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.

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

      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'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.

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

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