Peanut Butter Cookies

A classic favorite… and no one will be able to tell they are gluten free! ♥

4 oz. butter (1 stick), room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla extract

1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup low fat coconut flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. xanthan gum

Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine brown rice flour, low fat coconut flour, baking soda and xanthan gum. Add to creamed mixture and mix until thoroughly blended and soft dough forms. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Crisscross the top of each ball with the tines of a greased fork, to flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees, or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.
