Peanut Blossoms

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Cream together butter and peanut butter. Gradually add sugars. Mix well. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add dry ingredients.

Shape dough into balls and roll in sugar. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place and unwrapped chocolate kiss in the center. Press firmly and bake 2 minutes longer.


Holly's Note:

I've also done these in mini muffin tins. Just roll a small ball of dough, dip in sugar and place in a greased or lined mini muffin tin. Press an unwrapped chocolate kiss upside down into the dough. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. I actually prefer these cookies done this way.



  1. This might be shocking but am not much of a peanut butter person, but I do love the texture of your cookies. Thanks for being part of the holiday linkz party
