Peanut Blossoms Cookies

I have some Peanut Butter that needs to be used…it’s already slightly expired.  This looks like a yummy way to do it!

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. pkg. milk chocolate kisses (remove wrappers)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • more granulated sugar

Preparation:

Beat butter and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Cover tightly and chill for 4-8 hours in fridge.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate piece into center of each cookie; cookie will crack slightly around edges. Let stand on cookie sheets for 3-4 minutes, then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 48 cookies

To freeze, shape dough into balls but do not roll in sugar. Place on waxed paper lined cookie sheets and freeze until firm. Pack into hard sided freezer containers; label, and freeze up to 3 months. To bake, roll frozen dough into sugar, then bake as directed, adding 3-6 minutes to the baking time.

    Ever tried flourless peanut butter cookies!? If you don’t like the crunchy hard peanut butter cookie you should try them!! Super chewy gooey!! 1 cup peanut butter, 1 egg, 1 cup sugar or splenda and 1tsp vanilla. Mix well, bake 350 about 8 minutes. SO good and quick!
