    Thank you for sharing this recipe! My daughter loves it when I make PB cookies with kisses on top at the Holidays but this year I figured I couldn’t make them for her because she has Celiac’s disease. This makes me very, very happy! Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. My son is eating gluten and sugar-free – with Splenda substituted for the sugar, these are cookies he can eat.

    Making these now with chocolate chips … They were no where near done in 8 minutes. Not sure if it’s the chocolate chips or my stove. My house smells delish though and I can’t wait until they are done!
