Gluten-Free Holiday Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

DAY 8 of Pamela's "12 Days of GF Cookies" - I'm honored to have been asked to share one of our favorite gluten-free cookie recipes with Pamela's fans!

My cookie recipe is...drum roll please...

Holiday Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

This recipe was introduced to me by my lovely sister-in-law, Jaime. She made these gluten-free for Jack soon after he was diagnosed with celiac disease. He asks for them all the time, especially when we go to Aunt Jaime's house...I GUESS she makes them better than me! ;)

Let me walk you through the steps of making this yummy recipe - it's super easy and super delicious! I love Pamela's Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour - it's cup for cup and it has a great flavor and texture.

Pamela's Products Gluten Free Artisan Flour Blend, 24 Ounce


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. 

There you have it! My holiday cookie recipe! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. 

Happy Baking and Happy Holidays!
