Peanut butter is delicious in baked goods. From no-bake peanut butter cookies to peanut butter granola bars, it’s a great ingredient that is packed with protein and absolutely delicious!

Peanut butter blossoms are a classic cookie to enjoy during the holidays. They’re made with a simple peanut butter cookie dough, and then get topped off with a Hersey kiss. You can top these cookies off with any type of chocolate, or even just make the plain peanut butter cookie if you like. (Though I highly recommend the peanut butter and chocolate combo!)

How to make Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms

Mix all the cookie ingredients together in a stand mixer or in a bowl, then roll the dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet. (Option to roll each ball into a bit of sugar for a different texture.)

Bake the cookies at 350˚F for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and let the cookies cool just slightly for 5 minutes before adding the kiss in the middle.

Store leftover cookies in an airtight container.

How long do peanut butter blossoms last?

These Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms will stay for up to a week in an air-tight container. You can also freeze the raw cookie dough, and then bake up a batch of these cookies on the spot when you’d like to enjoy them!

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use creamy peanut butter. I haven’t tested this recipe out with drippy peanut butter, so I can’t say if the texture will come out the same. I use natural creamy peanut butter which works best for these cookies.
  • If the cookie dough feels too sticky to roll into balls, place the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Use a cookie scoop to measure out even cookies.
  • Don’t add the Hershey Kiss in the cookies immediately after taking the cookies out of the oven. Since the cookies will still be very hot, they’ll melt the chocolate.
