Makes: 20

  • ½ cup of your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup shortening, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon strawberry jelly
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons rice or soy milk

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, stir together the flour blend and baking powder.

2. In the bowl of a standing mixer, blend ¾ cup of the peanut butter with the shortening on medium speed. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until smooth, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg until incorporated. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.

3. Using a small (1½-inch) ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop the dough 2 inches apart on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Using the back of a melon baller or your thumb, gently dent the center of each cookie. Spoon about ½ teaspoon of jelly into each center. Bake until lightly golden, about 12 minutes. Remove to a rack and cool.

4. In a small bowl, beat together the remaining ¼ cup of peanut butter and the confectioners’ sugar. Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, until the frosting reaches a good consistency for piping. Using a resealable sandwich bag with a tiny corner snipped off, pipe the frosting over the cookies.
