Peanut Blossoms

Its Christmas baking season! Time to pull out all those holiday favorites. I would love to hear what some of your favorites are, leave a comment, maybe you will help me discover a few new ones!! I thought I would start the season off with a classic, but can you believe I've never made peanut blossoms before! So simple, so delicious, so classic! Good thing I had some leftover kisses I needed to use up! The M-ster was very helpful in unwrapping all the kisses and in pressing them into the cookies. Here's the recipe I used, just in case, like me, you've never made them either. :)

Peanut Blossoms
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk
sugar for rolling
bag of Hershey kisses
*In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
*Cream the butter and peanut butter.
*Add both the sugars and beat well.
*Add the egg, vanilla and milk and beat to combine.
*Mix in the flour mixture.
*Roll a small amount of dough into a ball (about 1 inch) and roll in sugar to coat.
*Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 min.
*Remove from oven and immediately gently press a kiss into each cookie.


  1. One of my current favorites, that I'm making for a cookie exchange, are my mixed-berry cookies. They taste pretty much like single-serving berry cobblers! YUMMY!!! Lemme know if you want the recipe :)

  2. Janelle- Ooh, sounds good! I would like the recipe!
