Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie Recipe

Peanut Butter Blossoms are a Christmas Cookie staple that every everyone should know how to make. While it is easy to just pick up a boxed mix at the store, I think it is important to know how to make basic cookie recipes from scratch. During the Christmas season there are always a variety of options for Hershey’s Kisses and other candies to top these cookies with. I personally thing traditional milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, hugs, chocolate stars, and peanut butter cups are all delicious.

Ingredients 

1 3/4 Cups Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Sugar

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 Cup Shortening

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter

1 Egg

2 Tablespoons Milk

Additional Sugar

48 Unwrapped Candies

Directions 

Combine shortening, sugars, egg, vanilla, and peanut butter. Add dry ingredients and milk. Shape dough into small balls (about 1 Tablespoon) and roll in sugar. Place onto greased cookie sheet and flatten with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and place a candy in the middle of each cookie. Let cookies cool before serving or packing.
