Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Stars

More holiday baking is on the horizon today. One of the more simpler cookies I am baking is the traditional peanut butter cookie with chocolate stars. Seems these cookies are everywhere during the holiday season and they are on my list to bake as well. This simple recipe comes from the Kid Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook. It's quick, simple and so easy to make.

For the chocolate stars, Brach's Dark Chocolate Stars are conveniently dairy free. Place the chocolate stars on top of the cookies just as they come out of the oven and the chocolate will melt slightly making the perfect, mouth watering cookie that will be gobbled up in no time.
