Today marks my last contribution to #ChristmasCookieWeek 😩 But I’m going out with a bang, don’t you worry! These cute gluten free peanut butter blossoms are a popular choice during the holidays and were actually my favorite of the three recipes I created for this food event. They’re not too sweet (even with the big ‘ol Hershey kiss in the center!) and I think peanut butter cookies are the best anyway. And that sanding sugar from Sweets & Treats (not sponsored) adds just the right touch of sparkle.

rarely eat alot of what I bake. Usually, I take into work or bring to my family for them to eat. I will, of course, taste test everything, but eating a whole recipe by myself is never a good idea 😉 But I must admit, over the course of a week, I ate this entire recipe. LOL. They were THAT good. Definitely my favorite of the 3 recipes I’ve shared this week. I highly recommend them. These will totally be on our family Christmas dessert table this year. No doubt about it!

Maybe you should look into this recipe for Gluten Free Italian Pizzelles. It just might be my favorite recipe I’ve ever created.
