In exasperation he said "If you are going to keep treating me like a guinea pig with all these recipes, I want peanut butter cookies!!!  And not that funny free stuff either - I want gluten.  Don't worry, I won't share them with you."

He is no fan of tapioca flour...  But I am on a mission to find ways to make food as good if not better ....   I am on a mission to fool everyone.   So I picked up some all natural peanut butter and I went through my cook books. I had every intention of making up 3 different batches... That is until I measured the peanut butter out for the first batch and realized I only had enough to make one... So I made it count!

    Preheat Oven to 350 f. Mix the first 3, dry, ingredients. Fold in the beaten egg, peanut butter and maple syrup. Roll dough into balls. Flatten with a cup dipped in Orange Vanilla Sugar and then mark with a fork dipped in the same sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on how browned you like them. This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.

    Oh and that he...He has no idea about the almond (GF) flour....

    Bake 1 sheet at a time for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the sheet 1/2 way through the baking period. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute. Using a spatula, transfer the delicate cookie to a wine bottle or rolling pin. Allow to sit until cooled. This step gives the cookie their curved shape, making them a perfect companion to coffee icecream or chocolate mousse.

    My cookies were a little thicker than ideal. As a result, this recipe calls for less flour.
