Gluten Free Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Gluten Free Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

Every so often I crave the deliciousness of a soft yet crunchy peanut butter cookie.  I've been working on this recipe for quite sometimes trying to perfect the perfect blend for the type of cookies I like.
I like a crunchy outside with a soft chewy middle.  The creaminess and richness of peanut butter makes me want to eat a numerous amount all at once, and we all know what happens when we eat a ginormous amount of cookies all at once.  :)
I find that these cookies will get soft if left out on the counter in a air tight container so I refrigerate them after a day or so.  I think I may try a crunchy peanut butter next time and perhaps some chocolate.
