Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

People are shocked when they learn these soft and flavorful peanut butter cookies use 3 simple ingredients and are gluten free! No flour in this recipe, just sugar, an egg and of course peanut butter.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • Unwrapped Hershey's Kisses


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Put sugar, egg and peanut butter in bowl. Mix until well combined.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch small balls. Place the dough balls 2” apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are a very light golden brown. (Check the bottom of the cookies often to prevent burning.)
  5. Remove cookies from oven.
  6. Wait 2 minutes then push an unwrapped chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Allow to cool thoroughly before storing in a tight container.

Maybe it’s my love for peanut butter that has me making these time and time again. After all, I have a whole blog FILLED with peanut butter recipes!

Another one of my all-time favorite peanut butter cookie recipes is my No-Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. You still get that delicious mix of flavors, but you never have to turn on the oven!

I also recommend checking out my Peanut Butter Chocolate Scotcheroos.

They’re not technically cookies, but they’ll do the trick if you’re craving chocolatey, peanut butter goodness!
