Peanut Butter Blossoms

So aren't these on everyone's Christmas Cookie Trays?

They're wicked easy! Why don't I make them more often? Would they be less special at Christmas if I did? I dunno, maybe because I don't usually have Hershey kisses in the house. I dunno.

Anyway... yeah....


Peanut Butter Blossoms
1/2 C butter
1/2 C peanut butter
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 egg
2 TBLS milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 C flour
1/4 C sugar (for rolling)
Hershey Kisses (unwrapped)

Preheat oven to 350F
Cream together butter & peanut butter. Add sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until well combined.
Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Mix in flour.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar.
Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss into the center of each cookie. Cool on wire rack.


So, make the dough as directed above... my dough was a little soft, so I tossed it into the fridge for 30 or 45 minutes.

Then roll into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.

Place 2 inches apart on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned

Immediately press a Hershey kiss into each cookie (sorry for the blurry pic, it's not easy to take a pic of yourself doing stuff)


Cool on wire rack... and enjoy!!
