Peanut Butter Blossoms

Decided to make some Peanut Butter Blossom’s today. You can use the recipe for Simple Peanut Butter Cookies. But I wanted to give my Grandma’s recipe at try, and I am glad I did! I will type out the recipe as a regular recipe but put what type of flour I used. That way my friends who do not have to be GF can enjoy as well!
Here is what you will need:
  • 1 3/4 cups flour (I used Gluten Free Pantry All Purpose Flour Mix)
  • 1 tsp baking Soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening (or butter)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 48 Hershey Kisses
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix all ingredients (except the kisses) on low speed until dough is firm. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Immediately press Kisses down into cookies until edges cracks. Move to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
Recipe yields 3-4 dz

They turned out really good and the Gluten Free flour I used did not change the taste of it. In fact— I cant keep my husband away from them!

    There is something about little kisses on top of cookies that kids love, I personally love the cookie part! I have heard good things about the GF Pantry mix…thanks for sharing on Allergy Free WEDNESDAYS!

      What flour did you use? I didn’t have a problem of them being “crumbly” so I am not sure other then maybe a different flour blend. Also when I measure my flour I do not pack it into the measuring cup and even the top out. The flour is in the cup loosely so it may not come out to the exact amount (if that makes sense). I found by measuring flour like that I can use the same amount of liquid as if a regular recipe. You could possibly try adding a little more milk as well. If those don’t work you could also try using my simple peanut butter cookie recipe for the base (1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla). that works as well the other recipe was just in honor of my Grandma 🙂

      Let me know if you have any other questions!
