About This Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms
Don't get mad, but I've actually never made peanut butter blossoms before.
I know, I know! It just wasn't in my cookie repertoire. I'm usually a gingerbread girl. But after a 1:1 coaching client asked for help with making them gluten-free, I realized I had a recipe perfect for them already!
I previously have made these gluten-free flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for Christmas for many years. And I realized that by substituting out the chocolate chips for Hershey's Kisses, (which are gluten-free), I could also make peanut butter blossoms!
So I experimented with them. And guess what? They are scrumptious. All of the cookies I made from that batch I gave away to friends and family who have already eaten them all!
What You'll Need To Make These Cookies
These cookies are naturally gluten-free and also flourless! You will need:
-Peanut Butter (smooth and creamy kind - I like Jif Simply or Natural, both are GF)
-Brown Sugar & Granulated Sugar
-Hershey's Kiss Chocolates
And that's it!
How To Make These Cookies
All you do is combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate) into a bowl with a spoon. You mix everything until smooth, form into balls using your hands, and roll in granulated sugar. Finally, you bake them in the oven, and once they come out of the oven, you pop a Hershey's Kiss in the center of each one and press down. Perfection!
Tools For Baking Cookies
Baking Sheets: I recommend these from Nordic Ware. I use them for all of my Christmas cookie baking!
Silicone Mats: Not required, but helpful and less wasteful than using parchment paper. I use SilPat because they last forever!
How To Store These Cookies
Cookies should be stored at room temperature in a sealed container and will keep for 3-5 days. I have not tried freezing these cookies but believe they are better fresh, due to the minimal ingredients in the dough. You can keep the dough in the refrigerator if you don't use it all up during your first batch - just use it within 24 hours.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms
The perfect holiday cookie!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 18-20 Hershey's Kisses, unwrapped
Preheat the oven to 300 Degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In a large bowl, mix together everything but Hershey's Kisses with a spoon until combined. Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, scoop out portions of dough and roll into balls with your hands. Roll in the granulated sugar. Then, place on the baking sheet but leave 1 inch or so in between cookies as they will expand.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown and still soft to touch in the center. Don't panic about the softness - they will keep baking. Remove from the oven and add a single Hershey's kiss to each cookie into the center. Leave cookies on the baking sheet for additional 8-10 minutes (this is a must!) before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
Cookies should be stored at room temperature in a sealed container and will keep for 3-5 days. I have not tried freezing these cookies but believe they are better fresh, due to the minimal ingredients in the dough. You can keep the dough in the refrigerator if you don't use it all up during your first batch - just use it within 24 hours. Enjoy!
