Added soy free/dairy free chocolate chips for the ultimate easy cookie

I made these with splenda brown sugar so they are gluten free (No Flour) and sugar free I also let them cook for 11 min's very good!

I really like these cookies. In my opinion they should bake for about - 12 minutes and be left on the cookie sheet until they've cooled completely. This keeps them from falling apart and seeming raw. I too, enjoy adding chocolate chips to the mix. Reminds me of Reese's Peanut Butter cups! They're also wonderful for people who require a gluten free diet as no flour is needed.

Greetings. I was craving peanut butter cookies and did not have any baking soda. I was way too lazy to go to the store. So..I came to this site. :) I am so glad I did. All these years and I never knew that I could do this. My kids loved them!! Thank you!!

I have been making these cookies for 50 yrs....here's some hints & ideas:
Mix PB with sugar first and after you've added the egg & mixed, let it set for 15 minutes..no grainiess
I usually flatten the cookies by cross hatching them using a fork dipped in sugar.
I make thes without cross hatching them and after they have cooled drizzle the tops with chocolate chips that have been melted in the micowave with a tsp. of butter..sometimes I even dip them in this chocolate.

I liked the cookies but they were still raw when they came out of the oven!

I was quite skeptical about this recipe considering there were just 3 ingredients needed, but I'm a believer now! They are really, really good. I will never go back to the more complicated peanut butter cookie recipes because there is no point. After the first batch I decided to see how they would taste using a teaspoon of vanilla and I think it made them even better (if possible). Highly recommend!

These are perfect to use with a Cookie Press. Choose your favorite shape, press onto a baking stone, bake and enjoy!
