Peanut Butter Cookie with a Twist

As you will come to find, we love to make a cookie our own way.  The recipe we used was for a Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies. You can find the recipe at   We have made these cookies many times before and they turned out absolutely perfect.  This time though, we had and idea to use frosting instead of Hersey Kisses.  In addition to that one change we also used Gluten Free Organic Flour.

Gluten Free Baking
Excellent substitution to regular flour.

This specific brand of flour is an excellent choice if you want to make a healthy change for your family.  Once baked, the cookies taste exactly the same.  I have used other brands of gluten free flours and they are very gritty and leave a taste to the food.  If you use this flour, and I make nothing for this, you will love it.

I have Gluten sensitivity and when I eat it I immediately start yawning, get foggy brained and want to lay down.  This happens even when I’m wide awake and chipper.  For that reason I am always looking for a way to make foods I love into something that isn’t like a tranquilizer gun to me.  Using this flour will change the consistency of your dough. That did not allow us to roll them dough into balls. We used a spoon to scoop them just like a chocolate chip cookie.

Mixing cookies
Breezy is a social media guru. Gotta stay busy while the cookies bake.

As you will notice from the image below, when the cookies bake they will not be as fluffy as when regular flour is used.  Adding a small amount of extra flour should do the trick.  We did not experiment with the flour consistency, because we were going to put chocolate frosting on them anyway.  While the frosting was good, to me the texture of the two was weird.  Ultimately we didn’t frost all of the cookies.  Perhaps what we really wanted was the Hersey Kisses. We ended up leaving them as regular peanut butter cookies. For us, a swing and a miss.  That’s okay though.  It’s the nature of the beast. I’m certain though, if these were made for kids they would love them.

Remember, you can always substitute regular flour. I also use whole wheat flour.
