There’s no flour in the recipe? Just want to make sure that was correct.

Does sound like a very easy peanut butter cookie recipe and I always have those ingredients in the kitchen.

I’ve made this cookie recipe many times. There is no flour and they turn out delicious! I also roll the balls in sugar before I press down with the fork. I think I’ll make some tonight!

We make these too! Another variation is to place a chocolate kiss on top right after they come out of the oven. Delicious! and yes, there is not any flour in this recipe.

I made these peanut butter cookies, with Crunchy Peanut butter. They are a bit crumbly, but very tasty!

Has anyone tried these with splenda? I’d like to find a more diabetic friendly recipe for christmas.

i have made these cookies for years only my recpe was 1 cup of sugar it is nice to know i can use half the sugar thanks. my recipe also called for them to be rolled in sugar before cooking but i don’t always do that my recipe wa s called “just like reese cups”

i am not sure if splenda would work the same but it is cheao and easy so i would try it.
