4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are a timeless American cookie.  Growing up I can certainly remember making them a lot but we called them fancy peanut butter cookies.  They sure did taste good but boy did they have a huge ingredient list!

That’s what I love about these 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies.  Yes you read that right, only 4 ingredients!

These little treats are also perfect for your gluten free friends because they have no flour.  I know pretty impressive that you make an amazing tasting cookie that stays soft without any flour.  When I tell people about these cookies they are shocked that one of the ingredients is not flour.  The combination of peanut butter and sugar is enough to keep these cookies together and they bake out pretty beautiful if I must say so.
