I used to bake all the time. I had epic Christmas cookie baking parties in my past. It was super fun! Then the Gluten issue happened.
The parties ended and much of my baking ended too. Not because I was sad and depressed, but it was just easier to go out to one of the GF bakeries in town and just buy something there when the mood hit me. Saves on time, mess and money. (if you stock all the GF baking products it’s at least double compared to traditional ingredients.)
That was the trend the last 3 years. But something happened to me on Monday. I wanted to mess up my kitchen and test out a lot of the recipes that hit my Facebook feed. There are some amazing GF bloggers and bakers out there. I am grateful to you. I know how much time it takes to master a recipe.
Let the testing begin!
I posted my desire to bake on the Gluten Free Gang Central Ohio Facebook page and many friends there suggested making the Peanut Butter Kiss cookie.
Here is the basic recipes I followed (Thanks Christy for the idea) I ended up finding this one from Allrecipes.
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Sugar (I did 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 Cup white sugar)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine sugar, peanut butter, and egg.
- Shape into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. NOTE: If dough is too sticky, refrigerate 1/2 hour or until easy to handle.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from oven. Press a chocolate kiss into the center of each warm cookie.
I am going to review this a little differently. I will add categories for cost to make as well as ease. (In addition to taste) If you ask my son how he liked a cookie, he is going to say “let me try a second one and let you know.”
