Cookies for Nancy (Recipe Below)

Last summer, I had learned how to make these amazing peanut butter cookies. I had some extra time this week, so I baked some cookies and took some for Nancy*.

The reason why this treat is so popular is because the recipe is so incredibly simple. In fact, it requires only 4 ingredients. Moreover, last summer, I was baking with a friend who was gluten sensitive. It’s hard to believe it given the final product, but this treat doesn’t require any flour at all.

I brought some cookies for Nancy and her family. As Nancy bit into the first one, she was utterly delighted. She loved them, and I had a great deal of fun showing her the process of making them. Unfortunately, her family wasn’t there that day. However, I look forward to making the treats and sharing with them in the future. Like me, Nancy has a sweet tooth, so it was nice to see that she enjoyed the cookies.
