Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms are peanut butter cookies with a nice chocolate kiss on top. Who doesn’t like a nice chocolate kiss especially when it’s on a cookie? Oh did I mention the peanut butter cookies are rolled in sugar before you bake them? These cookies should come with a warning because they are seriously addictive!

  • 1 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Extra granulated sugar for rolling the cookies.
  • A kiss for every cookie- Depending on what size cookies you make you’ll probably need 35-50 kisses.

  2. Mix the butter and the peanut butter until well combined.
  3. Add the granulated sugar and the brown sugar and mix.

  7. Place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat 2" apart.

***Update: I forgot to add the 1/2 tsp of salt to the recipe above. It’s added now and I’m sorry about that!

This batch of cookies will make 35-50 cookies depending on the size you roll them. The first batch of cookies I made them larger than these so I made another batch so they would be photo worthy. I hate we had to make more of these little addictive cookies, but oh we’ll take one for the team. 😉

Bear hugs,
