Can you believe I had never tried a Peanut Butter Blossom before?
So this was my first time baking them... and trying them!! And it won't be my last time!!
Peanut Butter Blossoms
makes approximately 48 cookies
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar (used 3/4 cup)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling (used a little less)
2 bags Hershey Kisses (you only need ~48), unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter and peanut butter together until smooth. Add sugars and cream for 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Stir in vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt, just mixing until combined, then add in milk. Cover and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
Roll cookies into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Lay on baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and push Kiss down into the middle of each cookie. Return to oven and bake for 2 1/2 more minutes. Remove and let cool completely.
