I know, I know...there are lots of "Best Cookies" but I just love
Peanut Butter Blossoms!
I think Santa would love to find a plate of these waiting for him on Christmas Eve!
I bought the traditional Hershey's kisses and then...whoa...is that a caramel kiss in the bag?
It adds a whole different taste to those Peanut Butter Blossoms!
Here's the recipe I always use...it makes a lot, but it's a great cookie for the kids to help with.
Peanut Butter Blossoms
One big bag of Hershey's Kisses (unwrapped, of course), about 100 of them
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of butter, softened (that's two sticks)
1 1/2 cup of peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon of milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Extra white sugar to roll the cookies in
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat the butter and peanut butter until combined.
Add white and brown sugar and beat until fluffy.
Add eggs, milk and vanilla; beat until well combined.
Gradually beat in the flour.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in white sugar.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet an inch or so apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss in the center of cookie.
Let the cookies sit on the pan for a couple of minutes before removing them to a wire rack.
I think my sewing machine is lonely. Too bad! I'm baking for Christmas!
What do you think is the best cookie ever?
