Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies with Flax Seed

This morning I had a craving for peanut butter. I decided to make some peanut butter cookies. I have a recipe for a gluten free version. i like this recipe because it has lots of peanut butter taste. On a whim I decided to add flax seed. I think it worked really well. The recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies. Perfect amount for not being too time consuming but give everyone around here a treat for a day or two.

Put balls of dough on a cookie sheet. For easier clean up you can use silpat,
Parchment paper or as I used nonstick foil. Bake 8-10 minutes–center of cookie should be set and lightly brown on cookie edges.
Enjoy!
