Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. (This is a hand-stirring job) Mix in the vanilla flavoring. Add the egg. Mix until it is all well combined.
The dough will be sticky, so be prepared to get your hands messy. Roll some dough into a ball. (How big? The size of a walnut) Roll the ball into white sugar. Line a baking sheet, covered in parchment paper if you'd like, with sugary balls of dough.
Bake in the oven for about 12 - 14 minutes. You will know the cookies are done when they feel coherent, but still a little soft. Take the tray out of the oven and let the cookies rest for at least 2-4 minutes. Afterwards, carefully transfer them to a cooling rack. In just a few minutes, they will have hardened and be glistening with sugar.
Johnnie's Critically Acclaimed Key Lime Pie
I hesitate to reveal this since it's so often requested for parties and special occasions...fans of this pie will be surprised at how SUPER SIMPLE this is...but, here goes!!! Gluten Free Key Lime Pie
**To make the crust use a box of Pamela's gluten free almond or ginger cookies OR Mi-Del's Ginger snap cookies(available at most grocery stores) to make the crust.
You can also MAKE gluten free molasses ginger cookies using at least a dozen to 15 for the crust. The recipe is below.
Grind the cookies well and add 4 tablespoons of melted butter and press the crumbs in a greased pie pan.
Bake this crust for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
The filling is made with "Nellie and Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice."a product that can be found at Jewel and Dominick's in the juice aisle and it's the ONLY juice to use!
Mix juice, milk and yolks well. Pour into crust and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes to set. After the pie cools cover and freeze. Can let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving or eat frozen!!
TIP: Be careful when buying low fat or fat free sour cream, cream cheeses and canned milks. Often a modified food starch or stabilizer is used to thicken the fat-free/low-fat products and these additives can be made with gluten.
