It seems like all of a sudden I have friends with kids or relatives who are on gluten free diet.  A reader recently too – asked me for some gluten-free recipes.  So I asked my friend Jill – who knows a lot about a lot – and she shared this very easy chocolate chip peanut butter cookie recipe that she enjoys.  I made them – and I must say that my family wasn’t in love (well, they are not peanut butter lovers.)  But I thought they were pretty good.  Different.  Zach thought they were a little weird, but OK.  However Ali – my neighbor taster (and friend!) gushed about them.  She immediately texted me and said heaven!  She loved the milk chocolate chips (I tried milk and semi.)  Ali thought they were rich and decadent – I’m not sure she even shared with her kids or husband:)  So…mixed reviews – and not for everyone, but I wanted to share for all those who have restrictions because maybe this cookie will fit the bill for you or someone you know.  Enjoy-

(gluten-free) chocolate chip peanut butter cookies:

1 cup sugar

toasted nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line sheet pan with parchment.

Mix together the sugar and peanut butter, then add eggs and mix well.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  (Add raisins and nuts if using.)
