Peanut Butter Cookies

Four ingredients.  That's it.  These classic peanut butter cookies (fork marks included) pack loads of peanut butter flavor with just four ingredients you probably have on hand right now.  I found these over at pbs kids and a fun little fact...they're gluten-free!  For those of you that don't know what gluten is...it's a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale.  Didn't know that?  Me either.  

I actually made these last night because my good friend, Kara, and her daughter, Amelia, came over for pizza.  I've mentioned before that we don't have pizza delivery out here on the Trail, so it was not delivery, it was DiGiorno.  I felt terrible because I promised a cheese stuffed DiGiorno pizza (have you ever had them??? you need to!) and it actually wasn't.  Fail.  

But, the cookies turned out yummy, even though I thought they might have been a tad bit too peanut buttery.  I didn't think I would ever say that, but I said it.  Adding some chocolate would have made them perfect.  Let me know if you try and what you think!
