Peanut Butter Cookies...Maybe?

Run ons & all by: Alisha at 4:43 PM

After 48 hours of reading Gluten Free recipes...I took the leap and decided to experiment with what I had on hand.

I found some of the best sites for advice and recipes.
Adventures of a Gluten Free Momhttp://www.adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com/

The recipe that I based this experiment off of was from gfe and you can find it here.

I wanted to aim for making a less sweet breakfasty type of cookie that Avery could eat with Nutella (which is sweet enough).  I also wanted them to look as much like my traditional peanut butter cookies as possible.

So I dug through my cabinets and found the $7.00 tiny little box of GF Bisquick that I bought and never used this summer, 3 jars of peanut butter, brown sugar, and the very last drops of vanilla left from tons of Christmas cookies.  I was set...I had everything needed...

Peanut Butter Cookies...Maybe?
1 cup Peanut Butter
1/8 cup GF Bisquick
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp vanilla

I preheated the oven to 350, mixed all the ingredients together with the hand mixer, and then rolled then into 1 inch balls. The dough is very wet and sticky. It tasted pretty good raw:}

After baking for 8 minutes I followed gfe's directions and left them on my pan, which was a very good thing because they were still somewhat gooey...but a few of the smaller ones cooked fully and were nice and crunchy.

After the rest of them firmed up a had to do a few taste tests.  There was a slight difference in taste, but really not that much.  Every time I take a test bite I wanna say it needs some butter smeared all over it...

Avery was excited to have a cookie waiting for her after school.  She rated it a 6.5...that is not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement.

Cole who LOVES everything with at least an ounce of sugar rated the cookies an 8.5...hmmm...that is a big gap...I think he is buttering me up for something! (Birthday at the end of the month)

  2. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get
    four emails with the exact same comment. Is there
    a way you are able to remove me from that service?

    benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me

  10. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

  15. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near
    future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

About my Recipes

We are a gluten free family. All of our main meals are Gluten Free. When posting a recipe, I do not think it is necessary for me to write out Gluten Free for each ingredient. It should be assumed.

I double check ALL labels and packaging before I purchase anything. If you are going to safely provide a GF environment for yourself or your family, double even triple checking each product must become a standard for you as well.

Also, when I am cooking a meal that I have 'created' or cook often, I do not measure. If you have any questions about exact amounts, please leave a comment and I will try my best to answer.

If I am posting a recipe that has gluten in it I will then explain that...I do still purchase a few gluten items for my son and husband's lunches and snacks. However, gluten recipes will be very very rare.
