You Have to Eat Sometime: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies
By Clara and Agnes

Editor’s note: It’s turning out that one of the best decisions I’ve made as a Mom has been to let the kids loose in the kitchen with only the proviso that they clean up after themselves. They’ve turned into excellent bakers and cooks with great instincts in the kitchen who are willing to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies on a whim. I think it’s going to turn out that another good decision of mine will be asking them to share their favorite recipes on the Sew Jewish blog, in a new category of posts we’re calling “You Have to Eat Sometime.”

These peanut butter cookies are perfect for a nighttime craving or a protein-y treat for school lunches. The cookies are gluten and dairy free, and their few ingredients lend themselves to an easy clean-up. We baked our cookies in a cupcake tray, which yields fewer but thicker cookies that keep their shape. You’ll find the recipe from Claire Robinson on Enjoy!

Update: The original title indicated that these cookies are Passover friendly, but as Clara pointed out to me after she saw the headline, peanuts are not kosher for Passover in the Ashkenazi community. The reference to Passover was removed from the title. Editors. *sigh*.
