Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 36 cookies| Hands-On Time: 30m| Total Time: 1hr 15m

Ingredients 2 cups creamy peanut butter (not the all-natural variety)

1  cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions Heat oven to 350° F.

Using an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low and beat in the eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and salt.

Roll heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. With a lightly floured fork, press the dough to a ⅜-inch thickness, making a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.

Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the edges are set, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Servings: 18 “This is a meringue cookie with a double chocolate taste. Store these in an air tight container.”

INGREDIENTS:
3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
powder
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
2. Combine egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla. Beat until the whites form soft peaks. Slowly add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form, and mixture becomes glossy. Fold in cocoa and chocolate chips.
3. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls on to a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

[If you have never worked with Meringue before make sure you follow these steps so the above recipe comes out well
Separating Eggs:
Cold eggs separate more easily than those at room temperature because the whites hold together better.
To separate an egg: Crack the egg and hold the shell halves over a bowl. Transfer the yolk back and forth between the halves, letting the white drop into the bowl. Do not cut the yolk (whites containing any yolk will not beat properly). Transfer the yolk to another bowl.
The tiniest bit of fat or egg yolk will wreck a meringue, as fat interferes with the formation of good foam. When separating eggs, if a speck of egg yolk falls into the egg whites, lift it out with an empty eggshell half. Do not try to fish it out with your fingers; the oil on your skin will prevent the egg whites from expanding.
Avoid letting your fingers touch the areas that will come in contact with the egg whites. That way, you’ll avoid leaving oils from your hands on the utensils you just washed.
Room Temperature: After separating, bring egg whites to room temperature to ensure volume when beating (as warmer eggs whip faster than cold eggs). Egg whites right out of the refrigerator will not whip well. The ideal temperature to whip a common meringue is room temperature, about 70 degrees F. (21 degrees C.). Usually 30 minutes is adequate to obtain room temperature.]
