Peanut Butter Blossoms 

“Cookies and cakes have been a Christmas treat for centuries. But after two Minneapolis flour millers shaped and embellished tradition, holiday baking was never the same again.” – Tom Webb Pioneer Press from his article 12 Days of Minnesota Christmas: Craving Christmas cookies? Thank Betty Crocker

Enjoy one of my favorite Christmas Cookie!

Peanut Butter Blossoms 


Make 48 cookies 

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 48 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped

Heat oven to 375°F.

Combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. If dough is too soft, refrigerate 30-60 minutes. Roll balls in 1/4 cup sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate kiss in center of each cookie. Remove to cooling racks.
