    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!

  3. Martha Hollingsworth says

    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.
