Gluten-free recipe of the week!!

Gluten-Free Peanut Cookies

125g butter
1/4 cup (65g) crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup (150g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups (225g) gluten-free plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3/4 cup (110g) roasted unsalted peanuts, toasted

Preheat the oven to moderate (180 degrees C). Lightly grease oven trays.Beat the butter, peanut butter, sugar and egg in a small bowl with an electric mixer until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. Roll heaped teaspoons of mixture into balls and place about 3cm apart on prepared trays. Press lightly with a fork. Bake in a moderate oven for about 12 minutes or until browned lightly. Loosen biscuits and cool on trays.

Of course you could go down to your local woolies and buy some ready made gluten-free cookies, but it is much more fun making your own (especially with your kids).
