Peanut Butter Cookies Just Like Grandma Used to Make!

These peanut butter cookies are just like the ones my grandma used to make! Except these days I used white rice flour to make them gluten free. 🙂 They still taste the same!


I must apologize to those of you who can’t have peanut butter – because these Peanut Butter Cookies are amazing!
