I love peanut butter cookies. Some people like the soft and chewy ones, others like the crunchy and crumbly ones. I love them all! When I came across this particular peanut butter cookie, I fell in love and immediately asked for the recipe. Turns out it was from some newspaper clipping and while I would love to give credit to whomever developed these little morsels of heaven, I have no idea where it came from.
What’s unique about these cookies is that they contain no flour! Just peanut butter, eggs, and sugar. Yep, that’s it. Easy peasy. They are very delicate cookies and will crumble if you’re not careful transferring from the cookie sheet to the cooling rack, but when you put one in your mouth and it almost melts in your mouth, you will know why I love these cookies so much. So, give them a try the next time you get a peanut butter craving, I promise you won’t be disappointed! (I've also made them without the kisses and they are still good so if you don't like chocolate (gasp) don't let that stop you from trying these.)

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
recipe source unknown
1 Jar (18 oz) creamy peanut butter
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
48 milk chocolate kisses (a 9 ounce package contains 53)
Heat oven to 350 F. Have cookie sheets ready. With a wooden spoon stir peanut butter, sugar, eggs in a medium size bowl until thoroughly blended. (Dough will be slightly sticky but don't worry, you'll still be able to roll it out.)
With floured hands, roll level measuring tablespoonfuls into 1-1/4 inch balls. Place 1-1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 12 to 14 minutes until cookies look dry with tops crackled. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss in center of each. Cool on cookie sheet 1 to 2 minutes, then
remove to wire racks to cool completely.
