Gluten-Free Kiss Cookies
As many of you know, my youngest can’t have peanuts. They make her sick. While I could’ve used almond butter to make kiss cookies, also known as blossom cookies, she loves gingerbread and I wanted to make something she’d love.
Traditional gluten-free kiss cookies are made with peanut butter and Hershey kisses. We still like to use Hershey kisses when we make kiss cookies, but we’ve come up with a new recipe that doesn’t involve peanut butter.
These gluten-free cookies are too good to not share. They make the perfect holiday gift for neighbors and friends.
