Tasty Treat Tuesday: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are a family favorite!  My mother-in-law is a celiac and cannot have anything that contains gluten so this is one of the few flourless desserts I can make for her.  I was a little worried at first that the lack of flour would make the cookies hard, like most gluten-free cookies are, but these are surprisingly soft.  The best part of all… there are only four ingredients!

Here is what you will need to make Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies:

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 egg

24 mini peanut butter cups

Here is how to make them:

-Preheat oven to 350

-Combine peanut butter, sugar and egg in a meduim bowl and blend until smooth.

-Divide out and place dough into 24 mini cupcake/muffin cups.

-Bake for 8-10 minutes.

-Remove cookies from the oven and press down an unwrapped peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie.

-Place cookies back into the oven for 2-4 minutes until cookies are set.

-Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack.
