Peanut Butter Blossoms (modified from
Makes 48 cookies
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 TBSP milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • sugar for rolling dough
  • 48 unwrapped Hershey kisses
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and ½ cup white sugar in a Kitchenaid mixer.
  3. Add the egg, vanilla, and milk to the mixture and beat well.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, and add the baking soda and salt. Add this gradually to the butter and sugar mixture until the dough becomes stiff.
  5. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet, 2-inches apart.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown. Immediately add a Hershey kiss to the middle of the cookie (press firmly so that the edges of the cookie begin to crack) and allow to cool.
I bake all my cookies on parchment paper, to help prevent burning and make it easier to remove from the cookie sheet once cooled. I prefer to roll the dough in sugar BEFORE shaping. I find that it makes it less sticky and easier to work with.
