College GF Peanut Butter Cookies

More GF recipes for the college bound. Quick, simple recipes and inexpensive! Today the college guy made my high school home ec. class favorite, four ingredient p/b cookies.

I can still hear the ultimatum shrieked by the teacher above the chaos of the class, "If I catch any of you sneaking anything like flour into the batter, I'll give you a D for the day!"

1 cup peanut butter,
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg

College Guy mixed them together, scooped up small balls, and got his little brother to roll them in sugar, and put them on the pans. They finally remembered to make the crisscross only on the last batch. (Even uncrossed, they were delicious!) He baked them at 350 for ten minutes.

Sounds like the home ec. teacher shrieked a good dictum, "NO FLOUR!" I'll do the same. And Thank You, Mrs. Page II for the only culinary training I ever got !

I love peanut butter cookies! I have a recipe that I think works well too, but it's minus the eggs. It's fun to make a sweet treat once in a while. My husband wouldn't mind if I made cookies everyday! But... well I just don't think that's the healthiest thing to do! :)

But you have to watch what you eat pretty closely with Celiac, don't you? I admire how you seem to carry on so well in spite of it.

I don't think I have any food allergies. But I do avoid certain foods. Yet I do it for ethical reasons. You must make your food choices for your own safety! I admire you for that.

It's great to meet you and talk with you! Take care! And you're welcome to visit me anytime. :)

Cami makes these for me all the time :) :)

Also, I didn't understand until the last line what teacher was screaming this. Maybe make that a little clearer? It almost sounded like one of Ian's teachers at school making the whole class bring GF cookies. Very confusing.
