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.
