Flourless Double PB Peanut Butter Cup Blossom Cookies


It’s Wayback Wednesday, and with the holidays coming up faster than we all care to admit, I thought I would bring you the full recipe for an easy and super-yummy cookie recipe that I shared over at One Creative Mommy. And the best past is, whether you are gluten-free or not, there are perfect because they are completely flourless Double PB Peanut Butter Cup Blossom Cookies.

I have a serious cookie issue. I always want a variety, so I make, like, ten different types every year, forgetting that each batch makes three to six dozen. What does that mean? We usually end up with about FIVE HUNDRED COOKIES! Literally. My family isn’t that big. That’s a lot of cookies.

Combine that with The Hubby who insists that we always have to have enough food for at least three times the number of people we are going to have, and then I usually end up throwing together one more batch. Have you seen all of the cookie recipes I have posted this year? Plus the (super deliciously awesome) oatmeal cookies I made for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap made about six dozen, and I had to send out three, but I got a dozen of three different types in return. Then I off-loaded some of the overabundance of Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookie Bars (the recipe makes a ton) at a cookie swap, and brought home a whole bunch more. And he is still telling me that it seems like we don’t have many cookies around.

Seriously, he must not have looked in our freezer.

Soooo, I added my usual Snowballs and Snickerdoodles to the mix annnnnnd made ONE.MORE.BATCH. I think it was all a ploy to get me to make his favorite.

Honestly, I did double up the recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies and then split it to make three different varieties, so I don’t have dozens and dozens of each. But I am glad I have some of these babies around. So good. ALL.THE.PEANUT.BUTTER. Oh my goodness!

I love those peanut buttery cookies with the little chocolate Kiss on top.  But since I do try to be “gluten aware” and limit how much I have, I thought a gluten-free version was in order.  And a double peanut buttery one at that!  I am a total peanut butter fanatic, so rather than using gluten-free flours, I just amped up the PB factor by making flourless peanut butter cookies, then, to put them over the top – a peanut butter cup instead of a Kiss.

Do you go crazy baking for Christmas?

Flourless Double PB Peanut Butter Cup Blossom Cookies
Flourless, super peanut buttery cookies topped with a peanut butter cup for a double PB dose! A new twist on the classic "blossom cookie".
Serves: about 2½ dozen cookies (can easily be doubled)
  • ½ c sugar
  • ½ c dark brown sugar
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 c natural peanut butter (I used creamy)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla
  • About 30 mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using a fork, mix together the sugar, brown sugar, and baking soda in a bowl.
  3. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat in the peanut butter until cream.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  5. Form balls using about 1 tablespoon of dough, place on the cookie sheet and flatten to about ½ inch thick with your palm.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly golden and set.
  7. Let cool on the sheet for about a minute, then place a peanut butter cup on top of each cookie, tapping slightly so that the chocolate "glues" it to the cookie.
  8. Cool for another five minutes or so on the cookie sheet before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    What a great combo. We love peanut butter and chocolate. We have family members with celiac and this will be a great option for them. I never know what to serve when they come. My hubby always wants me to make three times the food we need when having people over too. Do you think they are scamming us for more goodies? Haha!
    We would love to have you join us at our weekly Super Saturday Link Party. It goes live tonight at 7 MST at http://www.madefrompinterest.net. It would be our honor to have you share your great work with us!

      Yes, I think the easiest way to bake gluten free is to leave the flour out altogether :-) My hubby is equal opportunity when it comes to making too much food – sweets and savory/healthy stuff, just lots of it!
