Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

These peanut butter kiss cookies were a big hit at a family Christmas gathering.  Several people ate them and had no idea they were gf, which I think is a good thing.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup butter
1 egg
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup white rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Heshey's chocolate kisses

Heat oven to 375 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cream together in the sugars, peanut butter, shortening, and butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add egg and mix until well-blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.  Gradually add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture, while blending on low speed.  When mixture is smooth and well-blended, drop onto prepared cookie sheet by scant tablespoons.

Bake for about 9 minutes, or until cookies are set and just starting to brown around the edges.  Remove from oven and press a chocolate kiss into the top of each cookie.  Let cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack--they will be very soft at first.
