Peanut Butter Blossoms


These peanut butter blossoms are the stuff that makes life grand (imho).  They’re on my top 5 favorite list of cookies.  These are always a must for Christmas time! If you haven’t tried them yet, do yourself a favor and whip up a batch!

By January 14, 2010



  1. Remove wrappers from chocolate kisses; place in freezer overnight.(I forgot to freeze them and they came out just fine!)
  2. Heat oven to 375°F. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.
  3. Shape dough into 48 balls (about 1-inch each). Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 3 to 4 minutes. Press frozen peanut butter filled chocolate piece into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove cookies from sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. 48 cookies.

    GREAT cookies, always a hit. I also bake these in the little mini-muffin pans and press a mini- Reeces cup into them.

    Oh Kathleen sweetie…
    Aren't these the best. Yours look so yummy. Kids and grandkids love these darn things.

    I am in the process of trying to rework the recipe with Splenda and try making some for me. I am an isulin diabetic and have wanted to try making the cookie a little healthier for me. No chocholate for me, just the cookie. Have you tried cooking with splenda?

    Thanks for sharing. Love your pic. Just the right angle.

    Country hugs sweetie…Sherry

    Shhhh! I did the same thing, first healthy dinner, but couldn't resist making some cookies as well. And my husband asked if they were too dangerous for him. I said, “hmmm,no, there's only one egg and very little butter in them”, one cookie want hurt anyone, don't you think so?
    These look so wonderful, I'd probably have hard time to stop popping them into my mouth.

    Kathleen, during the holidays I eat many of these classic treats. It is not Christmas without them. And Like you I want to eat healthier in 2010, but will definitely be making a batch or 3 of these classics during the year.
