Peanut Butter Blossoms

Untitled(2)These were a favorite when I was a kid! They’re easy to make and fun to eat. My boys love to lick the gooey chocolate first. So yummy!

  • Hershey’s Kisses (milk chocolate) (about 40-48)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup + 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375*. Beat butter and peanut butter in a large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Put the leftover 3 tbsp. sugar in a shallow bowl; roll each cookie in the sugar and place on a cookie sheet(do NOT spray or grease). Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie; cookies will crack around the edges. Move to a wire rack and cool completely before serving. Store in an air tight container.
