Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

In an effort to find a gluten-safe dessert I remembered a friend of mine making flourless peanut butter cookies a couple months ago and started searching the web for a recipe that seemed good. If you do this you'll find that there are a million different recipes listed out there, but I decided on one from PBS and I can say that this one definitely has The Academic Chef's stamp of approval!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, your choice)
1 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
*I also added a dash of cinnamon

Preheat over to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a mixer, mix together all of the ingredients on low speed until well combined.
Using two spoons, scoop small spoonfuls onto the baking sheet about an inch apart (12 per sheet).
Using the back of a fork, making an indentation into the dough, pressing it down and then cross the tines of the fork in the other direction to make a sort of square mark on the cookie. Don't press too hard. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
