Experimental Cooking

The ingredients: 1 c. peanut butter, 1 c. sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp. vanilla Before baking:

I am needing to make several dozen cookies tonight. Only problem: I'm too tired/lazy/cheap to use the full-out ingredients (butter, chocolate chips, etc.) that I would use in my typical recipes. So, I pulled out my Busy Woman's Cookbook that I purchased when I was teaching full time. I found a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. They are currently baking, but I'm a little scared to see how they turned out, especially since they are flourless...hmmmm. I'll have to let you know how they turn out....I'm VERY curious!!
3 posts today...WOW!!!

Flourless is a great way to eat. I love the cookies recipe you posted. Try different butters (almond, walnut, pistachio) You can even make your own butters in your food processer just add the nut of choice and grind, slowly add just a little oil (little is the key) until you find the right consistency. I created a cookie just for that reason (flourless) and thought I would share it and the reasons why to go flourless. Flour has a product called alloxan in it and it creates Uric Acid in our bodies in large quanities, some researches say it is as damaging to diabetics as sugar itself. You can read more about this product on my blog and on my website,
