Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These simple, quick, and easy flourless peanut butter cookies are the perfect delicious balance of peanut butter and sweet, minus the gluten. They maintain their melt in your mouth texture longer than their first hour of being removed from the oven (if they happen to last any longer than that). Definitely a favorite in our house... as well as any gathering they show up to.
