Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms, Hershey’s Kiss Cookies: these little cookies have a few different names, but they are a classic. As a kid I used to just eat the kisses off of them. As an adult, I am able to appreciate the cookie as a whole. I was very happy to have a little baker helping me today. I think he was just trying to eat the kisses, like his mom used to, but none the less he was in the kitchen with me.

I got some kisses on sale + coupon (really cheap)after Christmas with the intent of making these. My brother and good friend love them. I am sure this recipe exists somewhere out there in recipe land, but here is my recipe:

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Makes 4 dozen cookies

1 package Hershey’s Kisses unwrapped

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

Additional sugar for dough balls

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cream together butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Add 1/3 cup granulated 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 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Cool completely…and enjoy.
