Christmas Cookies: No-Gluten Peanut Butter Cookies

    There's nothing better on a cold winter day than a peanut butter cookie, straight from the oven, with a hot cup of tea. But wait -- do you have to forego this pleasure if you're on a low-gluten diet?


    These peanut butter cookies don't have one lick of flour included. And they don't need it. Try one or more of these crunchy, wonderful treats for your next party -- the 'who cares about gluten' guests won't even notice the difference.


     2 cups smooth peanut butter
    (for a crunchier version, use chunky peanut butter -- and add a sprinkling of chopped nuts on top of the dough spoonfuls before baking) 
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs  (if you're lucky, they'll be from chickens in your backyard)
Beat the peanut butter, slowly adding sugar as you mix. Add vanilla and eggs, and mix well.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350°F degrees for about 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Makes about two dozen cookies.

Serve these to your favorite Christmas elf -- they'll be thrilled!
