Gluten Free Hershey's Kiss Cookies

Get ready for a mouth watering cookie. Remember eating these right out of the oven. All gooey and ..... FULL OF GLUTEN! But I have reworked this recipe for you and now you can enjoy them gluten free. My children watched me as I put the first batch in the oven. They begged me to let them have one for their snack. You will notice an odd shaped "kiss" on the pile of cookies. Well, it isn't a kiss at all but a Reeces Peanut Butter cup. My daughter loves them and even in a peanut butter cookie it isn't too much. These cookies got the *thumbs up* rating from my children.

Gluten Free Hershey's Kiss Cookies

1 3/4 c. Gluten Free Flour Mix
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Celtic Salt
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar

1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Sift baking soda, flour, xanthan gum and salt together. Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars in another bowl.
Add egg and vanilla. Beat well. Blend in dry ingredients.

Then shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Take from oven; place a Hershey Kiss in center of cookie. Return to oven for 2-5 minutes.

These cookies look fantastic! Peanut butter & chocolate are a winning combination, that is for sure!

Thanks Jeanine! They are good. I am very pleased with my cookies lately - except the other day I forgot the Xanthan Gum and ended up with pancakes. :) Tonight I made Lemon Cake. Kids are so happy.

I make a peanut butter cookie with brown sugar and no flour that's pretty good, but these look terrific, too. Folks have a hard time resisting that PB/chocolate combo. :-)
