Peanut Butter Blossoms

These cookies have been a staple of my holiday memories ever since I was “knee-high to a grasshopper”.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate together in cookie form!

This is actually the second time I’ve made them, previously I made them about Mid/Late December.  According to Ben, one member of the team really enjoyed these cookies, so he got the last few from the jar when they went back to work after the move.

This time I ran out of Hershey’s Kisses so I made up the remainder with strawberry jam.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup Peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Hershey’s Kisses (unwrapped)

Directions:

Also great with jam!

  1. Cream together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and the first half cup of granulated sugar.
  2. Beat in Egg and Vanilla.
  3. Add in flour, baking soda and salt and mix thoroughly.
  4. Roll dough into ~2 inch balls.  Then roll balls into the 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
  5. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350ºF (176.6º C)
  6. Remove cookies from oven and press a chocolate kiss into the top of each cookie.
  7. Return to oven and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes.  Cookies should be slightly browned, and the kisses will have a glossy look.
  8. Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely.
Its important to allow these cookies to cool completely or you will find your kisses smooshed and smeared.  (Or your jam all runny!)
