Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Mother’s Day!

In celebration of mother everywhere I decided to make my Grandmother’s peanut butter cookies.  I remember as a kid sitting down at their table with a cookie and a glass of milk, the milk was a must, and biting into a cookie and the way it absorbed all the moisture in my mouth and melted.  Yum.

These cookies are not quite my grandmother’s since I used regular flour instead of rice flour (she had to follow a gluten-free diet for health reasons).  So the taste is not quite the same, but still close enough to bring memories of my grandmother’s warm smile to mind.

Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose or rice flour
1/4 cup potato starch flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl cream peanut butter, butter & sugars until mixture is light and fluffy.  Add flours, baking powder, vanilla & egg; beat until smooth.  Drop batter by tablespoon about 3 inches apart on a nonstick cookie sheet.  Flatten criss-cross style with a fork dipped in rice flour.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool on sheet before removing.  Enjoy!
