Gluten Free Christmas Cookies
Searching for goodies without wheat?
Being gluten-intolerant or a Celiac disease sufferer can be really challenging. It's hard to eat out or at other people's homes for fear that there is hidden gluten in something you are eating. The holidays can be especially hard because of all the delightful dishes and party foods. Here are a few recipes that are sure to be a hit with folks, whether they are gluten-intolerant or not!(Photo Credit: Jeanette ONeal http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/browse-author....

Spread cheer with these easy, awesome cookies!Peanut Butter Cookies1 egg 1 cup sugar1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy – whatever your preference)Beat the egg in a bowl, then add the sugar. Mix well. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Form balls of the dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. With a fork, flatten the top of each ball into a cookie, with criss cross fork marks in the top of each.Bake at 300 for 12 minutes. Makes a little more than 2 dozen.NOTE: Apparently, some peanut butters contain gluten, or at least have warning labels saying that they are processed in a place that also processes wheat. Most peanut butters are gluten-free, but be aware when you are buying your peanut butter, as with anything else, and check your labels!I actually stopped using measuring cups after the first time or two that I made these. I just sort of estimate and do it by sight, and they always turn out well! I will say that I am usually a fan of creamy peanut butter, but when making these cookies, there is something about the crunchy variety that just makes these cookies awesome. I recommend crunchy peanut butter!!
