Gluten Free Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies Recipe ~ Blogmas Day 20


I used this recipe for Valentines Day this year (Blog Post).
They are so yummy. I've done them again but instead of hearts, they are Christmas themed.

The same with all my other recipes. I find a recipe and make it Gluten & Dairy Free and suitable for vegetarians.

Preparation time: approx. 20 mins

Dough chilling time: 1 hour 30 mins

Cooking time: 8-12 mins

Oven Temperature: 180 C / 350 F / Gas 4


Equipment:

1 mixing bowl
Cookie Cutters
Wooden Spoon
Kitchen Scales
Rolling Pin
Baking Tray
Grease Proof Paper
Wire Rack

Ingredients:

  • 100g Peanut Butter
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 200g Plain Gluten Free Flour, plus extra for dusting.
  • 1/2tsp Vanilla Essence

Method:

1 ~ Place the Peanut Butter and Sugar in a bowl and beat them until they are just creamy in texture (do not over mix or the cookies will spread during baking). Add the vanilla essence then beat in the egg until it is well combined.

2 ~ Add the flour and mix it in until a dough forms. Gather the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling film and chill it for at least 1 hour.



3 ~ Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and, using a rolling pin, roll it out to an even thickness of approx. 5mm. You will notice (if this is your first time baking with GF flour) the dough is really crumbly, just keep compressing and combining the dough. 

4 ~  Dust the top of the dough very lightly with flour, then cut out a cookie.



5 ~ Transfer the cookies to a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and chill for at least 30 minutes before baking.



6 ~ Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F / Gas 4. Bake the cookies for 8 - 12 mins until they are a golden colour.

7 ~ Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.





Enjoy :)
