Although I am actually starting to enjoy the whole gluten free thing, I am sure YOU don’t want to keep hearing about it. However, I do have to admit one thing. I went back over the 900+ posts on my blog to see how many of the old recipes were gluten free. I was shocked (though I don’t know why) to see how many were wheat based carb loaded desserts or breads. Really, I don’t know why I didn’t name this blog “Carb Town” and just get it over with!
So, having admitted my addiction (that is the first step, right?), I am heading right back to what I know best. I can make sugar loaded wheat flour treats and not eat them, right? Yup. So, I made the kiddos some peanut butter cookies. But I was bored. I think it had to do with seeing the two packages of 75 corn tortillas I had just purchased every time I opened the refrigerator. So I added a little life to the cookies; a little jelly (which was really jam, but who’s keeping track?) My sons each wandered through the kitchen and said in rather offended tones, “what have you done to our cookies?!” I don’t know if they got together before hand and planned it or if they are all more alike than they’d like to admit. Anyway, I repeated myself 4 times, “I am making peanut butter and jelly cookies. You will like them, trust me.” They should know by now that I know their taste buds and that I would never lead them astray. An hour later, after dinner, all the cookies were gobbled up.
I used my tried and true peanut butter cookie recipe and instead of criss crossing the top with a fork I made a little indentation and spooned on some strawberry jam. Bake as normal. They weren’t exactly thumbprint cookies. The dough is different. But the idea is similar.
