dash recipesDash Holiday Cookie Bake-Off winner Karen Spector claims, “This ridiculously easy recipe came out of my obsession with peanut butter. I can't get enough of it, whether it's smooth or crunchy, regular or honey flavored.” The Scottsdale, Arizona native goes on to say, “These flourless cookies are one of my favorite indulgences, but what makes them truly special is that I can share them with the gluten-free folks in my life."

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup crushed peanuts

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
