4-Ingredient Peanut Blossom Cookies

Last year after Thanksgiving, my mother-in-law and I were talking about our plans for Christmas. There are several people in our family that are gluten sensitive and I was thinking about treats that I could make that would be flourless or gluten-free with as little effort as possible. As much as I love my family, I would prefer to spend time with them, rather than just baking for them. You know? 
I had settled on this old fashioned peanut butter cookie recipe that is made without flour when my mother-in-law was telling me how she wasn’t really feeling up to making cookies this year.

I know how much she loves baking with the grandkids when they come in town and it just broke my heart to think about her missing that.

Peanut Blossom Cookies

So, I decided to mix her several batches of cookie batter and freeze them so she could make cookies, without all the work. I used a 1 tablespoon cookie scooper to portion them out into balls and wrote the directions on each Ziploc freezer bag.

I was pretty excited to see what she did with them. When I looked for the old fashioned peanut butter cookies, much to my surprise she used the recipe to make peanut butter blossom cookies. I was so thrilled by her creativity.

I honestly didn’t see more potential than a peanut butter cookie, but Gigi had the vision for these 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Blossom cookies. They are absolutely amazing. They are soft and billowy, chewy and peanut buttery! You are going to love them.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup honey roasted peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/4 cup extra
  • 1 large egg
  • 36 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easy clean up). Add 1/4 cup sugar to a medium (2-cup) bowl. Set aside.
  • Mix 1 cup sugar, peanut butter and egg in a medium bowl until well combined. Use an electric mixer, stand mixer or a wooden spoon.
  • Scoop cookie dough using a 1 tablespoon scooper, drop onto cookie sheet. Roll cookie balls and drop into sugar.
  • Once 4 cookie dough balls are in bowl, swirl it around until cookie balls are covered in sugar.
  • Place cookies on cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes (until barely golden brown around the edges). Meanwhile unwrap candy kisses. Set aside.
  • Remove from oven and place a candy kiss on top of each cookie ball, pressing down slightly. The cookies will crack a little around the edges.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Serve and enjoy.
