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!

Ingredients

  • 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.

Instructions

  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  • Mix the butter and the peanut butter until well combined.
  • Add the granulated sugar and the brown sugar and mix. 
  • Add the milk, egg, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour and mix until combined.
  • Shape the dough into one inch balls and roll in the extra granulated sugar. 
  • Place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat 2" apart. 
  • Chill them in the fridge for 10-30 minutes before you bake them. Remember, the warmer the dough balls are the more the cookies will spread.
  • Bake them at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes. When the edges start to turn light brown remove them from the oven and place a kiss in the center of each cookie immediately. 
  • Let them cool completely.
  • ENJOY!
***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,
