Every so often I crave the deliciousness of a soft yet crunchy peanut butter cookie. I’ve been working on this recipe for quite sometimes trying to perfect the perfect blend for the type of gluten-free peanut butter cookies I like. I like a crunchy outside with a soft chewy middle. The creaminess and richness of peanut butter makes me want to eat a numerous amount all at once, and we all know what happens when we eat a ginormous amount of cookies all at once. ? I find that these gluten-free peanut butter cookies will get soft if left out on the counter in a air tight container so I refrigerate them after a day or so. I think I may try a crunchy peanut butter next time and perhaps some chocolate.
