Peanut Butter Blossoms

Hershey’s kisses are amazing.  Those were my absolute favorite candy/chocolate when I was a kid.  Well, before I found my love for Skittles and Starbursts.  These cookies combine the wonderful Hershey’s kiss with a chewy peanut butter cookie…can’t go wrong there!

This recipe typically calls for milk chocolate Hershey’s kisses, but I used dark chocolate this time.  I would HIGHLY recommend this change if you tend to prefer dark chocolate.  So rich and yummy!

YIELD: 3 dozen cookies or more

TIME: 1 hour

1-3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp milk
Hershey’s kisses
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Beat all ingredients well except dry ingredients.  Blend in dry ingredients gradually.  Shape dough into balls and roll in sugar.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 375 F for 8 minutes.  Press one Hershey’s kiss on each cookie until the edges of the cookie crack.  Bake 2-5 minutes longer.

Hope y’all enjoy!

xoxo, Sara

  1. I always did like these. It reminds me that there are a few Reese’s peanut butter hearts stashed in the cupboard…
