    Awesome Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

    Today’s recipe is for all those folks adhering to a gluten-free diet these days; but I promise all of you who aren’t, will enjoy these cookies just as much as the ones your mama used to make. Yup, I know that’s saying a lot, but I couldn’t believe my tastebuds when I took a bite out of these yummy gluten-free peanut butter cookies. So this one is for my good friend, M., because she never makes a fuss of her gluten-free diet and she thought these cookies were pretty delicious (or at least that’s what she said).
