Peanut Butter Blossoms

Mmmm....chocolate and peanut butter....I have nothing else to say, except....DELICIOUS!!

 Seriously Delicious!!

Peanut Butter Blossoms
recipe from my bag of Hershey Kisses :)
  • 48 Hershey's Kisses
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Additional granulated sugar
Directions:  Pre-heat oven to 375°F.  Remove wrappers from chocolates.  Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended.  Add 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy.  Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well.  Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Immediately press a chocolate into center of each
cookie; cookie will crack around edges . Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.

Makes about 48 cookies.

Or....if it is around Valentine's Day and you can get Reece's Peanut Butter Hearts, substitute the kisses for hearts.  Just be sure to let your cookie cool for ~10 minutes before you add the heart...or it will melt.

Pin It!
