I discovered this wonderful recipe 11 years ago in Cooking Club of America (it was submitted by Betty Ebner) and have been making it ever since. That recipe calls for 2/3 C sugar, and bake time is 12 minutes instead of 20, at same temperature. I have tried it using a flax seed substitute for egg (a vegan substitute: 1 tbsp ground flax plus 3 tbsp water) which works for oatmeal cookies but doesn't work here. I imagine other nut butters would work just as well as peanut butter, so next on my list is to try this using Nutella instead of peanut butter...
I made this a couple years ago for our family reunion. A lot of my Aunts were on the Atkins. I used splenda instead of the sugar they thought I was cook of the year. Everyone of them told me I had better email the recipe to them. I got it from Paula Deen she called them "Majic Peanut Butter Cookies"
I had a houseful of hungry teens - one of them on a gluten free diet - so I stirred these up to satisfy their snack cravings. The cookies were gone in no time at all and I had to seach the pantry for another jar of peanut butter to make another batch. Chunky peanut butter worked well - so did reduced fat. Quick, yummy, gluten free :) Thanks for posting.
