Peanut Butter Blossoms
I know, another peanut butter chocolate recipe, but really, is that ever a bad thing? This recipe’s a classic. A Hershey Kiss stuck on top of a still hot peanut butter cookie. Yum.
Ingredients: Cookies (from here)
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temperature
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
*Extra granulated sugar
48 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375F.
Beat shortening and peanut butter together until creamy.
Whip in both sugars until lighter in color.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add, in intervals, to the wet batter.
Roll cookie dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar before setting on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom. Immediately press kisses into the cookies and cool. After five minutes, move cookies to a wire rack.
