Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blossoms Recipe:

The Gluten Free Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie Recipe are smooth and creamy just like the cookies I grew up with.

The center is topped with a Hershey Kiss for an irresistible treat! These cookies have the perfect crispy edge and chewy center that make these the perfect treat anytime of day!

We love to take them to parties, make them for family movie night, or our next holiday get-together!

I have been known to eat these with a giant glass of milk while watching a movie! The gluten free peanut butter blossom cookie recipe are even perfect with your morning coffee!

Can I use a Peanut Butter Cup instead of a Kiss candy? 

Yes! The peanut butter cup works perfectly with the Gluten Free Peanut butter cookie. I love peanut butter and milk chocolate! Having the gooey peanut butter cup on top just makes this cookie complete.

Honestly, sometimes I prefer the peanut butter cup over the chocolate kiss. Gives me the extra chocolate and peanut butter I crave.

We seem to always have a bag of Hershey Kisses in a candy bowl around the house! You can often catch the Hershey Kisses on sale or you can order a big bag on Amazon.

We like to hand out platters of these cookies to neighbors and friends so I always just buy a big bag to save time and money.

I recommend using a stackable baking wire rack for this recipe. This one is the best and it takes up much less room with the multiple layers. The cookies cool faster and the finished product is amazing.

You will use this for lots of cookies recipes, if you don’t already have one.

I also highly suggest using a baking mat.   They work great and make clean up much easier too. I use mine all the time and don’t know what I would do without it while baking.

It’s hard to tell the difference!

Recently we have started adding gluten free foods to our meal plan. I was surprised that none of my kids realized that these cookies were gluten free.

Not even my gluten loving family. Gather the kids and enjoy a plate of cookies baked gluten free. These are perfect for you to serve for an after school treat.

You will be amazed how simple these cookies are to make. I suspect that your kids will be coming back for more.

Is Xanthan Gum needed for Gluten Free baking?

I have used Xanthan gum in a lot of my gluten free recipes; however, I did not use it in these cookies and I don’t think it’s needed.

The 1 to 1 Gluten Free flour does a great job binding the cookies together so Xanthan gum is not needed for this cookie recipe.

Can I freeze Peanut Butter Blossoms?

Yes! There are two ways you can freeze the gluten free Peanut Butter Kiss cookies.

  • You can prepare the peanut butter dough and roll into balls then coat with sugar. Line them on a wax paper cookie sheet and freeze for about an hour.

    Once dough is frozen then transfer to a freezer bag for up to 6 months. Once you are ready to bake them, thaw out the dough and bake as directed. Don’t forget to top with your favorite chocolate.
  • Another way, that you can freeze these cookies is baking the cookie and top with your favorite chocolate.

    Make sure the cookie is completely cool and then you can freeze up to 3 months. Once you are ready to enjoy, thaw for 1 to 2 hours before enjoying.

These are the perfect way to enjoy these cookies all year long!
