Peanuts don’t have gluten, do they?

In honor of the sweet peanut butter cookies I’m making tonight, I’m re-hashing some of my old web 1.0 content, and posting it to my blog, and to OlyBlog. Have fun, and remember, all things in moderation!


Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies by Cosmo G. Spacely


peanut butter 1 cup
sugar 1 cup



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, (180 C), mix ingredients thoroughly with fork, and spoon out cookie sized blobs on a cookie tin, preferably one lined with tin foil and pre-greased, then place them in the oven until they are done. (Usually between 13 and 18 minutes, depending on your taste, oven weirdness, etc. Make your own judgment, eh?)

Please don’t make the mistake of thinking since these cookies are gluten free, they’re somehow more healthy than other cookies. These cookies are heavy in fat, cholesterol, calories, and carbohydrates, all of which are bad for you one way or another. Make and eat at your own risk. Cosmo G. Spacely makes no representation of any kind regarding these cookies, not even that they are truly gluten free, (There’s no flour, do peanuts have gluten?) Cosmo does think that they are delicious, however. * Nutritional information is estimated, probably largely suspect, but included here anyway, as some kind of penance for putting these tempting cookies on the web in the first place.

  1. Hey Jay,
    It’s your freakin’ nephew… Nick! How’s Olympia? Miss you guys. Germany is pretty rad I guess.. I’ve been sick a lot lately though. Just got back from Italy. Later

  2. Hey Nick,

    Hope you are both doing alright in L’Allmagne! I’m just goofing off mostly, since I’ve been working so long without a vacation, my brain is turning a little spongy. Listen to the Podcasts if your mom will let you. (R-Rated? – Shocking!)

    Your aunt Glenys (she prefers to be called Dingo now), says hi, and sends her love. Erin is coming up for Thanksgiving, so I think Grandma and Rex and Blair will come over here to partake of the ceremonial feasting in less inclement climate.

    Miss you, get a flickr (Yahoo) account and start posting your pictures, if you haven’t already, and if you have, send us the site address, and we’ll check it out.

    Cosmo (Jay) and Dingo (Glenys)
