Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

We're doing foods this month! Yum, yum, yum. And we couldn't pick a better month than November, my favorite time of the year. Why, you ask. Well, because of all the yummy, delicious foods prepared during this month of Thanksgiving all the way through to New Year.

Today, I'm going to share with you one of the absolutely best cookie recipes, hands down, that I've ever come across. They are rich and gooey just like chocolate chip cookies were meant to be. And since it's gluten free, it makes this recipe even better.

*1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
*1 cup brown sugar
*1 egg
*1 tsp. baking soda
*1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
*1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together in a large mixing bowl the peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, baking soda and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon by the tablespoon full onto parchment paper-line cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. For crispier cookies bake longer.

For gluten free, make sure all ingredients are gluten free and have not been contaminated by other members of the household. You never know who's eating out of the peanut butter jar. ;)

Not sure where the original recipe derived from, it came through a nutritional loop through the college I was attending last spring.
