Easy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies ~ Gluten Free Cafe All Purpose Flour
The holidays are often a time of rushing around to get things done. I wanted to create a peanut butter cookie recipe that was simple but more sophisticated than my Easy Low Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies. I came across Gluten Free Cafe All Purpose Flour at my local Walmart. It contained sorghum flour which I know adds great texture and chew to gluten free baked goods. I searched the internet and realized that this flour had no recipes created using it that I could easily find. I took this as a challenge to make a few tasty cookie recipes with this awesome blend. I made these easy peanut butter cookies and Gluten Free Italian Anise cookies as well. Both exceeded my expectations on the first try. I am excited to try this flour in more recipes and see how well it turns out. This flour bend works very well for cookies and I will be using it as long as the price stays low (four bucks for two pounds!). I tend to use the least expensive ingredients that I can find and usually do not use premade flour blends because of high prices. I was extremely happy to find such a good deal on Gluten Free Cafe All Purpose Flour and that it worked better than some of the more expensive blends I have tried. If you cannot find this blend, I would try another blend that contains sorghum flour as an ingredient.
