In our house, we have one child with food allergies. The rest of us have food preferences, but not life threatening allergies. Peanut butter cookies are a favorite with one of my non-allergy kiddos. As a result, we have modified our favorite peanut butter recipe, so everyone can enjoy cookies at the same time. These Sunbutter cookies are delicious!
Delicious Sunbutter Cookies
1/2 c. Gluten Free Flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. egg replacer
1 c. creamy Sunbutter
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 c. dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350*.
In a medium size bowl, measure out the gluten free flour, baking soda and egg replacer. Stir the dry ingredients.
Add the Sunbutter, sugar, brown sugar, water and vanilla.
Mix with a spatula until well incorporated.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form cookie balls of dough and place on baking sheet.
Press cookies down to about 1/4" thick. Traditional peanut butter cookies have the fork layed down like a basket weave cross-wise on the surface of the cookie - optional.
If you are a chocolate chip lover, gently push some chocolate chips into the top of the dough. 😉
Bake 7-9 minutes until the edges are golden. The cookies will be underdone. Pull them out of the oven and let cool on baking sheet. Let them rest an additional 5 minutes (if you can).
When I make this recipe, I make 6 cookies at a time. The first time I make this, I follow these instructions.
To save the rest, take a sheet of parchment paper and roll the leftover cookie dough into a 2 1/2" - 3" diameter log.
Place the log in a gallon size freezer bag. Label and date the freezer bag. Place cookie dough in the freezer (with easy access for munching ;)...).
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350*. Take the frozen cookie dough out of the freezer and place onto a cutting board. Slice the cookies into 1/2" slices and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake in oven 9-11 minutes until the edges are golden. Touch the center of the cookies to see if they are gooey. If they are gooey, continue to bake until center is firm - check every 2-3 mins. The cookies should be underdone when pulled out of the oven. Let them cool on the baking sheet. Let them rest an additional 5 minutes before eating.
