« Recipe: Peanut Butter Blossoms »

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Adapted from Hersey's

Yield: approximately 3 dozen cookies


Approximately 3 dozen Hersey Chocolate Kisses

1/2 c smooth peanut butter

1/2 shortening

1/2 c brown sugar

1/2 granulated sugar, plus additional from rolling

1 large egg

2 T milk

1 t vanilla

1 3/4 c flour

1 t baking soda

1/2 t salt


Preheat oven to 375 F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

In a standing mixer, beat shortening and peanut butter until well blended. Add brown and granulated sugars and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture, until dough forms.

Shape dough into one inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Top each hot cookie immediately with a Hershey Kiss. (Cookie will crack around edges and chocolate kiss will become very soft.)

Remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack. Cool completely. (The chocolate kiss will re-set as the cookie cools.)
