No, don't leave out the baking soda. Follow the recipe, but just leave out the flour. Let us know how things turn out.

Ingredients for flourless peanut butter cookies:

1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 large egg
20 Hershey's Kisses (optional)

Combine the sugar and baking soda with a wired whisk. Add the peanut butter and egg. Blend until smooth.

Preheat the oven to 350' F.
Form 1 tbs. of the cookie dough into a ball and place onto a parchment covered cookie sheet. Make another ball and place it about an inch from the first one. Repeat until you have about 20 dough-balls on the cookie sheet. Flaten the cookies out with the tines of a fork, in a criss-cross pattern. Place a Hersheys Kiss in the middle and bake for 9 minutes. Remove, take the parchment paper off, with the cookies, and place on a clean surface to cool. Enjoy.

It seems like 5 minutes is too short. The cookies weren't thoroughly baked even after 10 minutes. What is the maximum baking time?

The cookies came out really yummy but I need to tweak the baking time. 5 to 8 minutes was definitely too short. How long do you usually bake them for?

Glad you like the cookies, but you have to bake them for at least 10 - 12 minutes depending on your oven and the size of the cookies. They should be slightly golden on top. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. You'll get the hang of it after a few batches. Enjoy!

Smuckers sells a jar top with a metal mixer for natural peanut butter that has oil floating on top. They sell it for their organic peanut butter. Does all the mixing for you every time you need to open the jar.

You will find the mixer of page 17 of the catalog. You might also be surprised at how many products Smuckers owns.

The recipe called for 9 minutes, not 5. They would be definitely undercooked at the 5 minute mark. And remember, all ovens don't give you the correct temperature when you set the dial. Some are hotter, and some are cooler. 9 minutes is a starting point. Check them at that time. They may still need another minute or three to finish cooking
