“This is a slight adaptation of Bev's wonderful "Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies" Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. They're naturally gluten-free, with no special ingredients, and they taste like regular peanut butter cookies. I live at about 5200 feet above sea level. I'm adding details on the peanut butter ingredients for a GF (and alergy aware) cookie exchange.”
