Sugar-Free/Flour-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Cindy Kerber submitted this new-age cookie. "So many of my co-workers on the No Sugar/No Flour diet, I thought I should find a recipe that they would enjoy and not feel guilty. I tweaked this recipe until it turned out so people can't tell there's no sugar or flour in the cookies."

1 egg

1 cup peanut butter, I use crunchy but either will do

1 package sugar-free peanut butter logs (ground)

1 package sugar-free peanut butter logs (coarsely crushed)

Put egg in small bowl and beat lightly with fork. Stir in ground candy. Stir in peanut butter and stir by hand until well blended. Add crushed candy. Put on parchment covered cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and leave on parchment paper. Slide paper with cookies onto cooling racks and leave until completely cool. Yield approximately 2 dozen.

Easy Strawberry Cookie Bars

Kerber also submitted this fruity cookie recipe and said it's popular with her co-workers and family as it is so easy, it's foolproof. Their color makes them perfect for Christmas.

1 box strawberry cake mix

2 Tbls melted butter or margarine

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tbls water

1 Tbls flour

2 eggs

6 oz. white chocolate chips

Put melted butter in mixing bowl and add sugar, water and flour. Mix well. Add eggs and mix until well blended. Pour in cake mix, a little at a time, mixing well. This will be very thick. Pour in chips and stir well. Pour into sprayed 9-by-13 pan. I usually spray a large spoon with cooking spray to help press the mixture into the pan evenly. Bake at 350 degrees no longer than 23 minutes. Don't overbake. These will settle when cool. Cut into bars when completely cool. Yield: 24 bars. These are very chewy.
