One day recently my son woke up and said, "I want to make peanut butter cookies."
Okay by me! Who am I to turn down baked goods?
Do you ever make the super easy peanut butter cookies on the side of the Kraft peanut butter jar? They are true to the "super easy" description, so they are great as a beginner cookie for kids. Plus, they are really fast and take very few ingredients, so they are handy to whip up if you end up hosting a last-minute playdate, or even an adult visitor.
My son started making them a couple of years ago, at the age of eight. I had to help him with the measurements at the beginning, but now he is comfortable making the whole recipe himself.
We usually add chocolate chips for an extra sweet treat.
They are quite remarkable cookies considering they are flour-free. I still ponder how they actually work out.
But work out they do. They are delicious. My boy proudly brought them to my parents' house, where granny and grampy enjoyed them and even shared them with a visiting friend.
