These peanut butter and chocolate cookies were part of the spread at Laura … oil for a cookie sheet, optional; 5 dozen (one 11-ounce package) Hershey’s Kisses, …
Peanut Butter Blossoms are the perfect holiday cookie! In fact, they’re the perfect cookie for anyone that loves peanut butter, all year long. I’ve been making these cookies my entire life and they’re easy enough you can make them too!
These cookies remind me of childhood! I’ve been making some sort of blossom cookie practically my entire life. As much as I love making new flavors of cookies, the classics always have a place in my kitchen.
I’ve edited the original Pillsbury Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie recipe and instead used my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. The result: a soft and chewy peanut butter blossom that is the perfect Christmas cookie you should make all year.
What is a blossom cookie?
These cookies debuted at a Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1957 and have been a classic Christmas cookie ever since.
I don’t understand why people only make them at Christmas though; I make them all year (especially since my husband LOVES peanut butter).
Peanut Butter Blossoms are an easy peanut butter cookie recipe!
When they’re hot from the oven a Hershey’s Kiss is pressed on top, creating that classic peanut butter and chocolate combination. It’s no wonder these guys have been popular for over 60 years.I use butter instead of shortening. I find that using butter creates a softer and chewier cookie that’s less likely to get hard or crunchy.
This is just my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe that I use for EVERY peanut butter cookie on this site, it just is dressed a little differently!
using butter in the cookies keeps them soft and chewy for days!
The main difference between this cookie and my original is that, after I scoop them, I roll them in sugar and bake them in a ball. Peanut Butter Blossoms don’t have the criss-cross marks that traditional PB cookies have. Instead they stay puffy in the oven, perfect for that Hershey’s Kiss.
I also bake these smaller than my traditional cookies. Normally I use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop for all my cookie baking, but for these I use a 1-tablespoon scoop. That means I get more cookies (perfect for a cookie exchange) but the smaller size is the perfect fit for the Kiss.
