Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar⁠⠀
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy style
  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted⁠⠀
  • 2 eggs⁠⠀
  • 2 cups gluten-free 1:1 flour, I like Bob's Red Mill 1:1
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda⁠
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt⁠⠀
  • Unwrapped chocolate kisses
  • Granulated sugar for rolling⁠

YIELD: 24 cookies

DIRECTIONS:

Cream together butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time until combined.⁠⠀ Sift together gluten-free flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture. ⁠⠀ Cover dough with plastic wrap or place in a ziplock bag and refrigerate for one hour or up to 48 hours.

Pre-heat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop balls of dough, roll round and then roll in granulated sugar.⁠⠀ Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden and starts to crack just a bit.⁠⠀ Place a chocolate on each cookie immediately after removing from the oven. Return to the oven for 30 seconds just to slightly melt the chocolate.⁠⠀ Cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet until moving to a cooling rack.⁠⠀
