Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
From The Gourmet Cookbook
Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies
• 1 cup natural peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the peanut butter and sugar on medium high speed until smooth and combined. Lightly beat the egg and add it with the baking soda. Mix until fully incorporated.
Spoon by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared sheet pan. Use a fork to make a crosshatch pattern in each cookie.
Bake until puffed up and golden, 10 minutes. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Store cookies in an airtight container for several days.
