Gluten-Free Holiday Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Let me walk you through the steps of making this delicious cookie - it's super easy and super yummy! I've been making these for quite a few years now. I usually use Pamela's All Purpose Artisan Flour or Krusteaz Gluten-Free Flour - I use these brands because they are easily accessible at my local grocery store. I usually find them both in the regular "baking" aisle, along with the sugar, flour, baking mixes and so on.  BUT, you can use whichever "Cup for Cup" gluten-free flour works for you.


Ingredients:

1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Peanut Butter
1/2 C. Shortening (Jaime uses the Crisco Butter Flavored Baking Sticks)
2 Tbsp. Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 Egg
1 3/4 C. Pamela's Gluten-Free All Purpose Artisan Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 Pkg. of Hershey Kisses
                                                                                    
Have some extra sugar on the side to roll the balls of cookies in before placing on cookie sheet.

Step 1:
Mix all ingredients together, except for Pamela's Artisan Flour.

Step 2:
Add Pamela's All Purpose Artisan Flour - add half of the flour, mix.
And add the remaining flour.
 
Step 3:
Cookie dough is ready to roll into balls!

Step 4:
Roll cookie dough into balls, then roll balls in sugar. You can make the balls as big
or as small as you like. Jaime makes 40 cookies out of this recipe, I probably make 30.
Place on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8 minutes

Step 5: 
While the cookies are baking, unwrap Hershey Kisses...
and eat at least one or two while waiting for cookies :)

Step 6:
As soon as cookies come out of the oven, place a hershey kiss
in the middle of each cookie.

Step 7: 
For the holiday version, wait for cookies to cool 
and decorate with sprinkles and frosting. 
HAVE FUN! 

There you have it! I hope you give these cookies a try and enjoy them with your family!
Happy Baking and Happy Holidays!
