Peanut Butter Blossoms

What is the ultimate perfect combo? Peanut Butter & Chocolate of course!

I’ve been eating peanut butter cookies about as long as I’ve had teeth to chew ’em. It was one of my first foods that I could hold and bite. My mom says that I was always asking for “MORE” – (I used sign language since I couldn’t speak).

As I grew, so has my love for chocolate! Of course, when mom made these when I was little, I tore the chocolate off the top and ate it separate. But I’m a big girl now and can handle eating these like a “normal person” (whatever normal is I don’t think I’ll ever know).

If left by myself, I could probably eat an entire batch of these Peanut Butter Blossom cookies. Thus, these would be a great recipe for families or sweethearts to make together. Share the love, people! (and the calories!)

  • 1 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 Cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 Cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • white granulated sugar (for rolling)
  • 1 bag Hershey's Kisses


  • Pre-heat oven to 375.
  • Lightly grease your cookie sheets or use silicone mats.
  • In a small mixing bowl, thoroughly combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar with a mixer.
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  • Add the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Mix by hand until combined.
  • Roll the dough into rounded teaspoon size balls. Then roll in white granulated sugar before placing on cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes or until cookies have puffed up and are golden brown.
  • Immediately upon removal from oven, top each cookie with a Hershey Kiss, pressing down lightly – the cookie will crack. Let sit for 1-2 minutes.
  • Move cookies from pan to wire racks. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.


Before placing in a cookie tin or the freezer, place cookies in the refrigerator to allow chocolate to cool completely.
