    There are several recipes for peanut butter cookies with no flour on the internet. The one I used was very simple:
    1 cup sugar,
    1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy),
    1 egg.

    Mix until smooth and roll into balls. Place on greased cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork in a criss cross pattern. Bake 10 min at 375 degrees. Loosen with spatula and cool 5 min on cookie sheet before removing.

    There are alternate flours that can be used by people with celiac disease and these work fairly well in other recipes. Rice krispie treats, etc might also be okay.

    OOOOoooooH!! I have some- I'll have to dig them up- it's time to do that for Christmas anyway.

    My little sisters both have Celiac, and I'm fairly certain both my older sis and I do, but no physical symptoms.

    I have one handy, but it's an old family recipe, so it may be unusual...though most gluten-free recipes are.

    Gluten-Free Meltaways

    These need to be small enough to fit in the intended mouth, as they crumble obnoxiously. They don't rise, and melt in the mouth blissfully- very rich, as you can imagine.

    1/2 # room temp butter
    1 1/4 c. cornstarch
    1/3 c. powdered sugar
    1 c. all-purpose gluten-free flour (Bob's Red Mill is good)

    That's it!!

    You mix together the dry ingredients and then cream in the butter. Roll into walnut-sized balls and bake at 325 for just long enough for a slight golden tinge, then pull out and cool- don't touch until cool!! It's usually about 12-15 minutes.

    Glaze lightly with powdered sugar moistened with milk or cream- food coloring makes this fun; we always made several colors and addes sprinkles or colored sugar to a few.

    That is also for a small batch, as the gluten-free flour gets weird if you make a bigger batch all at once.

    For the regular recipe, which makes a million- though you may want to make a small batch until you've tried them:

    1 1/2# butter
    4 c. cornstarch
    1 c. powdered sugar
    3 c. sifted flour

    Make the same as directed above.

    My Dh has celiac. Celiac.com has some good one. Bobs red mill also makes an awesome pizza crust mix!

    Some people with Celiac don't include oats in their diets. Some controversy there...The 1 c peanut butter, 1cup sugar, 1 egg recipe is really good. You can add Hershey's chocolate chips, as well.

    I went and looked an had the recipe written down different on another card- I changed it to what I THINK is correct...
