QUICK Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies

I actually couldn't believe how easy and flavorful these cookies turned out.  I have a friend here in San Francisco that can't eat any of the desserts I make because of her really bad gluten allergy.  These cookies are completely gluten free and I don't even understand how they still taste amazing.  It's a complete miracle given I've tried some interesting gluten free desserts.  If you're looking for an easy cookie recipe that is a huge crowd pleaser, you'll fall in love with this!

Servings: Makes 24 cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 12 minutes per batch

*1 Cup creamy peanut butter
*1 Cup white sugar
*1 Egg
*24 Unwrapped chocolate kisses
*Parchment paper or cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper or coat in cooking spray.  Mix peanut butter, white sugar, and egg all together.  Form 2 inch dough balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven, place chocolate kisses in the center of cookie.  Place baking sheet in refrigerator for 10 minutes so chocolate kisses don't melt.

THAT'S IT!  Enjoy right away for up to a week or freeze up to 3 months.  Enjoy!
