Peanut Blossoms

Peanut Blossoms

Here’s a traditional recipe my children asked for every year, Peanut Blossoms. They’re known by other names, but they’re basically the peanut butter cookie with the chocolate kiss on top. What is the best way to eat these? I always eat the cookie around the chocolate and eat the chocolate last.

Peanut BlossomsMakes 5 doz.
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon salt
6 dozen Hershey’s Kisses
preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and add to creamed ingredients. Using a rounded teaspoon full, shape into one inch balls. Roll in remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place a chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Press down until cookie starts to crack. Bake 2 to 3 more minutes.

About Jyl Duffy

I love being a REALTOR and Office Administrator for Johnson Home and Land. There's no place like home here in Wyoming. This is home even though I enjoyed living in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina previously. With my husband, Dave, when we're not busy working we enjoy our Christian activities and being out of doors fly fishing, camping, golfing or snow shoeing. Wyoming is the best place to be for our active outdoor lifestyle.

    These are great Jyl. I remember my mom used to make these and my job was putting the kiss on top of each cookie. I’d eat a kiss every time she turned her back.
