Peanut Butter Blossoms

by foodlikecake

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

Recipe: Cookies

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.
