Gluten Free Peanut Butter Kisses

Wow, Christmas is 6 days away!! That is SIX DAYS people!! Do you have all of your Christmas shopping and baking done?  Yeah, me either. Not even close.

I must say though I am just about done baking.  Every year Ava, gets sick right around the Holidays and I’m left with a pile of cookies I’m too scared to give anyone.  I would hate for them all to get the flu because of my pretty cookies. 

Honestly, I’m getting a little tired of spending the money on high quality baking ingredients and then not being able to give my baked goods away.  I think for the next few years we might just do holiday baking for us and get everyone else small gifts. 

I do love the idea of giving baked goodies as gifts though.  It’s quite the dilemma and I know anyone with small children knows what I’m talking about.  Elementary schools are a haven for germs!

I must say I was glad these cookies were out of the house before the flu struck.  I think I could have easily eaten them up with no regrets.  They are so easy and I was beyond amazed when they came out looking perfect.  They have no flour!!  Who knew gluten free could be so good?
