With just three ingredients and in less than 30 minutes, you can have delicious gluten-free Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, full of flavor and with the same crisp chewiness that you get with a regular peanut butter cookie and it looks the same too!

I am excited this month to share this family recipe with you.  For the first time ever I am sharing a recipe that is from a family member on my Dad’s side of the family! Thanks to facebook, I have been in touch with family I only got to see on special occasions well as some family I have never met!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are not much trouble to make at all.  As a matter of fact, they are very similar to the peanut butter cookie recipe that I like to make that is from a 70’s cookbook that has flour in them and is a little more work. After I made that Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe, my cousin Cheryl told me about her daughter Bambi’s peanut butter cookie recipe that has only 3 ingredients.

 Bambi, whom I have never met – but seen photos of,  really resembles me, just a much younger me!  The first time I saw her photo I thought I was looking in a magic mirror.  Only because I was young again. 🙂 Cheryl’s dad (Uncle Lyle) and my dad are brothers.  The only boys in their family!

This is the family where I have all those Christmas Eve gathering memories of that I hold dear to my heart.  I made Bambi’s recipe today and am happy to let you know that they are very good!  I also love that these are gluten free.

This post was a part of the Family Recipes Event I used to participate in.  This event was started by Laura of The Spiced Life and me several years ago.

Family Recipes are very special to most people and it has a lot of meaning and feeling behind the making of these recipes.  This is what the heart of our event back then was about. They are still very special to me and I will always continue to make family recipes.  I love the memories that the a family recipe evokes and the love behind it all.

Do you make many family recipes? I would love to hear about them in the comments!
