Peanut Butter Blossoms

This post was a originally a guest post over at The Small Things Blog, but I though I'd re-post it here in case you are in the mood for making any more Christmas cookies! Also, there's my first ever video of me on here that I'll posted on my blog

Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Every year at Christmas time, at least one person in my family makes peanut butter blossom cookies. Sometimes, they are the only cookie we get around to making, but we always at least get these made!! 

The recipe we use  is falling apart and probably came from someones grandma, some Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook, or a church cookbook from back in the day.

Here's how to make them!

In a large mixing bowl, add 1 3/4 cups of flour.

Add a teaspoon of baking soda and half a teaspoon of salt.

Add a half a cup of sugar

And a half a cup of firmly packed brown sugar.

The recipe calls for shortening, but using a stick of butter works just the same.

Best ingredient: half a cup of peanut butter!! Also add one egg.

Add one teaspoon of vanilla...

and two tablespoons of milk!

Mix everything up until the dough is formed.

Scoop out cookies in the size of your choosing. The scoop I used was about a tablespoon, which yeilded approx. 30 cookies. If you want more use a little smaller scoop!

Roll the dough in sugar and cover all sides. 

Place them on a cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

While you are waiting for your cookie to bake, you need to unwrap all of your Hershey Kisses! (or hugs) I made this extremely embarrassing  very informative video to show you how a trick of how to unwrap them fast!

Alright. Well. That was great. ANYWAY. After your cookies come out of the oven, put a Hershey kiss/hug in  the middle of each cookie while they are still warm.

Yes, they do taste as yummy as they look!!

I'll be linking up to these parties:


  1. Drool...
    Those look super tasty! :)

  2. YUM! I want to squeeze some hugs now!

  3. These are my favorite cookie! They are fool proof to make. We always use chocolate stars rather than kisses (less unwrapping candy!) I love how these look with hugs though.


  4. amazing recipe. thanks. I will follow your blog.
