Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

When my mother (who's now a great-grandmother) gave me this recipe for no-flour peanut butter cookies 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, and I make them all the time! —Maggie Schimmel, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

"I have been making these Peanut Butter cookies since the 90s and they are the best PB cookie recipe I have ever tried. I did make a couple alterations, I add 1 tsp of vanilla for the flavor and I bake for only 10-15 minutes (usually 12 minutes). They are soft and chewy, never crumbly and NEVER gritty (no idea what would make this cookie gritty as one comment said unless she added to much sugar and or coarse sugar and under baked). When I have baked them longer (because I forgot to set the timer) they are crunchy but not crumbly and they haven't fallen apart.. Oh and they make for a really great Ice Cream sandwich too, because the cookie is soft, you don't break your teeth when you eat it, YUM.

Everyone that has ever tried this cookie has loved or at the very least liked them, even people that aren't that fond of peanut butter. Yes this recipe is that good. You really need to try it, but don't bake it for the 18 minutes that's just to long."

"Instead of using sugar, substitute the same amount of Splenda or other sugar substitute. Voila! You have a great treat for Diabetics."

"I made these with 1/2 c. Truvia baking Mix instead of sugar. I also added a tsp. baking soda and the texture was better."

"These were okay, but not as good as regular pb cookie recipes. Crumbled easy and had a grainy taste. I'm sticking with tried and true recipe. Amazing though it only took 3 ingredients. Would make in a pinch. Always have those ingredients on hand."

"I was really skeptical about only 3 ingredients but they're good! I also used brown sugar and cut it down to half a cup and put one chocolate chip on top."

"Great recipe for new little "bakers" to help prepare! No worries about over mixing and dough is ready in minures. We roll these in sugar before placing on cookie sheet lined with Silpat. Cookies do not spread. bake for only about 10 minutes in our oven. Easiest cookie recipe you will find!"
