Gluten Free Peanut Butter cookies without the Peanut Butter.
Judy Cameron, bless her heart, brought GF Peanut butter cookies to Kay's Christmas tea. They were to die for! And Major and Vince agreed. But, since peanuts are a bit iffy for me, I decided to try making them with Sun Butter instead. He recipe is dead easy! 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla. Mix it up, drop on the cookie sheet (I did spray mine), press down slightly with a fork and bake ca 20 minutes at 350*
So I didn't have all that much Sun Butter left, so I made a half batch using egg substitute. Ok, the texture is a bit different. But Sun Butter has a grainier texture than peanut butter. I think I might cut back on the sugar next time, and maybe use brown sugar instead of white, but I'd say they are pretty much a success. These are a bit drier than Judy's; not as chewy; but my oven tends to be wierd even tho the temp tests as correct at 350*. So next time I might try 325*.
I bet it would work with Cashew Butter too, but cashews don't have as much oil, so I might have to add 1/4 tsp of say, sesame oil.
