Peanut Butter Blossoms

As Christmas fast approaches, I’ve been making at least a batch of cookies per day.  My family is hosting Christmas this year, and we plan to have an enormous plate of assorted cookies for the kids’ dessert.  Thus,  I have an excuse to bake to my heart’s content!

To be honest, I’m not much of a Hershey’s fan. It’s just not good quality chocolate, and has a weird, un-chocolatey flavor.  However, even I have to admit that a kiss looks cute on top of a peanut butter blossom.

These cookies are quick and effortlessly cute, the perfect addition to a platter of Christmas cookies.  Enjoy!


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Hershey’s kisses

In a small bowl, sift flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.  Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars, then add egg, milk and vanilla.  Gradually add flour mix.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Roll the dough into 1 inch balls.  Bake 6 to 8 minutes.   Unwrap the Hershey’s kisses so that they will be ready.  Remove the cookies from the oven, quickly press in the kisses, then return them to the oven for two minutes.
