Tasty, bite-sized morsels that any kid would love and are also a great gluten free dessert recipe. Peanut Butter Kisses are a great choice for a birthday treat.
These can be served with or without the chocolate kisses. For alternatives to certain ingredients, see our tip on common GFCF substitutes.

Makes approximately 60 kisses, unwrapped. The sugar coating is optional.
1/2 cup butter Crisco
1 cup fine rice flour
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup potato starch
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 whole egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoon milk
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag of GFCF chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients until well-blended.
In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients and beat until well- blended.
At a low speed, combine the dry ingredients with the other mixture. The batter should be blended, but thick enough to combine into walnut size balls.
Form the batter into walnut sized balls and roll in sugar, if desired. Place about 2" apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set, but not hard.
Remove from tray and place GFCF chocolate morsels into center. Allow to cool before serving and then, enjoy!
