Kristi's Gf Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 24 cookies




  • Preheat your lovely oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream the butter, shortening and sugars together until fats are nice and fluffy.
  • Add egg and combine.
  • Switch to your paddle attachment and add flours, xanthan gum, salt, baking soda and baking powder a little at a time until combined. Dough will be thick! Add peanut butter last and beat until smooth.
  • Portion out dough into 1 oz (by weight) portions. Or, if you don't want to break out the scale, make 24 portions. Roll portion dough into a ball shape.
  • On a plate or in a shallow bowl pour out about 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Roll the cookie dough balls in sugar until completely coated. Add more sugar as needed.
  • Put sugared dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving ample room for expansion. I got about 12 on an AirBake sheet. Flatten balls with tines of a fork, then turn 90 degrees and do it again to form a criss-cross pattern (try not to do this too hard or you'll have very flat, but chewy cookies).
  • Bake for 10 minutes, being sure to rotate the cookies at 5 minutes to minimize burning. Allow to cool for 2 or 3 minutes on cookie sheet so cookies will set properly. Cool and devour.
