Cookies for the Holidays: Peanut Butter Blossoms

This is a classic, and if you've never made them before, it's easy. We prefer dark chocolate Hershey Kisses—easier to justify as a "healthy" cookie.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

  • 48 Hershey's Kisses Brand Milk Chocolates
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup Reese's Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Granulated sugar

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. 

  2. 2 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. 3 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. 

  4. 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each 
    cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. 
    About 4 dozen cookies.
