My dear friend Tracy is one of South Boston’s best kept secrets. She is without a doubt the best GF-baker I know, but whenever someone suggests she open a bakery, she shrugs, saying it’s just a hobby. So since her products aren’t available in Whole Foods near you, I’d like to share with you one of her amazingly simple, delicious, and dare I say healthy-ish recipes. You won’t believe how easy it is, nor how outrageous these cookies are!
1. Blend together:
1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1/2 cup sugar (or sugar substitute such as maple syrup, but not stevia–changes the consistency)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, place onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
3. Criss-cross each ball of dough with a fork.
4. Bake on the middle rack, 350 degrees (F) for 12 minutes.
5. Cool for another 10 minutes before eating/storing. If the PB you used does not have salt, I suggest sprinkling them with sea salt.
