Calphalon Roaster Giveaway & Peanut Butter Christmas Cookie Recipe

One of our family’s favorite Christmas cookie recipes has always been the Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. Since my Mom has gone gluten free this last year, I’m tasked with trying to find some good gluten free cookie recipes for her to enjoy. I’m sure she thinks that she’s going to have to steer clear of all cookie platters this year. Not the case… I’ll plan on creating a gluten-free cookie platter especially for Mom. Here’s one I’ll be including on that platter:   Flourless Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

It’s a simple peanut butter cookie… only 5 ingredients in the cookie dough.  They’re formed into balls, and I like to roll them in chunky, sparkling red and green sugar.  They crackle while they bake.

Although these cookies don’t contain any flour, they’re quite similar to the classic Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie recipe. The only difference is that they are perhaps a little softer and more flaky than their sturdy counterpart.

They freeze well. Just separate layers with waxed paper, and be gentle in handling them. Don’t plan to ship them anywhere- they’re not a good cookie for that.

If you don’t have to eat Gluten Free…. you’ll still like these cookies. In fact, you might be surprised how many things you’d still be able to eat and enjoy if you did have to avoid gluten. My family does not eat gluten free, but we happily gobbled these cookies. I managed to to sneak a few of them into the freezer to save for Mom’s special Christmas cookie platter.
