When my mother (who's now a great-grandmother) gave me this no-flour , gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe about 15 years ago, I was skeptical, because it calls for only three ingredients (and no flour?!). But since then I've never had a failure. For these gluten-free peanut butter cookies—3 ingredients are all you need! —Maggie Schimmel, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin


  • 1 large egg, room temperature, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Roll level tablespoons of dough into balls. Place on an ungreased baking sheet; flatten with a fork.
  2. Bake until crisp, 12-15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
