Peanut Blossoms

It’s Thursday.
Am I the only one who has trouble waking up on Thursdays? It’s so close to the weekend but it still feels so far away. Thursdays are days for extra cups of coffee and baking in the afternoon. And, you know, cleaning the house. But baking is always more important than cleaning. Right?
Do me (and yourself) a favor, and make this classic today. It’ll get you through the day. And tomorrow. And it’ll make your weekend a whole lot better.

Makes 48 cookies.

  • ½ cup butter, softenedIMG_1206
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 48 Hershey’s Kisses
  • extra granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350℉.
Cream together butter and peanut butter. You can use either creamy or chunky peanut butter, but I love the texture that the chunky peanut butter gives to the cookies. Add sugars and beat until smooth and fluffy. Add in egg, vanilla, and milk. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt and fold into butter/sugar mixture.
Scoop dough into one-inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Bake about 10 minutes until lightly browned. Once removed from the oven, immediately press a Hershey’s Kiss into each cookie.

PS. Do me a favor and check out my Etsy. New stuff coming soon!
