Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is fun, easy to make and yummy to eat!
Allergy Allert: If you are allergic to peanuts (get dry mouth, stuffy nose or hard time breathing or swallowing after eating them), these are not the cookies for you!

Here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup butter/margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 egg OR 2 tablespoons applesauce and 2 tablespoons oil
(optional) 12 oz. chocolate chips
Whip these together until smooth, then add:
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour:
   1 1/2 cups white rice flour
   1/2 cup sorghum or brown rice flour
   1/4 cup potato starch
   1/4 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix this together with fork or fingers until no longer lumpy, and dough is moist and very soft, but not like batter.
Form into 2 inch size balls, place on greased cookie sheet, then press down lightly in criss-cross pattern with floured fork. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until cookies are very lightly browned on the bottom. Cool before removing from cookie sheet. 
Makes 3 dozen (approximately).
