Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

 photo get-attachment8.jpg Boy, that's a mouthful, right?

This year for my annual cookie exchange, I made gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.  One of my best friends Brook has to eat gluten free, and since she comes to my cookie exchange each year, I like to make a cookie that is gluten free but super delicious so that everyone will enjoy them!

I've made these cookies a multitude of times in the past, and each time I make them, they get eaten up immediately.  So this year's choice was a no-brainer!  If you or someone in your life has to eat gluten free, or just loves delicious peanut butter cookies, you need to make this recipe immediately!
