I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I want to be able to share some of these recipes with others since I enjoy when others share yummy recipes with me! It's also a great way to store them for my children to have when they grow up!

Peanut Butter Cookies, Gluten Free
These are absolutely delicious and highly addicting! They are a dense cookie that is super easy to make! I've made them a few times already. I made them plain for a get together at church and I had many people comment on them and want the recipe. I made them into kissy cookies the first time I made them for myself at home, and they are absolutely delicious! I love them with the Hershey's kiss on top and rolled in sugar. I love that I can eat them since I am not eating gluten/wheat right now. This doesn't make a huge batch, which is good since I have a hard time keeping from eating them all!
1 cup peanut butter (I used natural)
1 cup sugar (+2 Tbsp extra if you are making Kissy Cookies)
Hershey's kisses if making Kissy Cookies
Regular Peanut Butter Cookies: Mix together sugar, egg, and peanut butter well. Dough is a little crumbly. I like to use a small ice cream scoop to distribute my dough onto my cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork, one way and then the opposite way. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Peanut Butter Kissy Cookies: Mix together sugar, egg, and peanut butter well. Using a small ice cream scoop or 1-2 Tbsp dough each, roll into balls and roll in the extra 2 Tbsp sugar in a small bowl. Place on cookies sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently press a Hershey's kiss into each cookie ball, put back in oven for 3 more minutes.
No sugar added: I have not tried this yet, but I read you can make these with Baking Splenda instead of sugar.
