1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups SMART flour blend
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt Sea salt for sprinkling on the tops.
Cream together butter and peanut butter. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down sides after each addition. Mix in vanilla. In medium bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add to peanut butter mixture and mix until well blended. Scoop onto parchment paper using 2 TBSP size scoop. Sprinkle each ball of dough with coarse sea salt, if desired.
