Have any of ya’ll started making Christmas cookies yet? I’ve made one batch of my favorite cookies, Peanut Butter Blossoms and boy did they go quick!!

Peanut Butter Blossoms

This is the famous Hershey’s recipe, thought I would share it.

  • 24 HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Granulated sugar

Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended.

Combine Peanut Butter and Crisco

Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy.

Add Sugars to Peanut Butter Mixture

Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.

Add Vanilla, Egg and Milk to Peanut Butter-Sugar Mixture

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Roll ball of dough in granulated sugar

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges.

Place Kiss in center of each hot peanut butter cookie

Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 2 dozen cookies.

Enjoy!

I shoot Nikon, my lens is a 50mm f/1.4. Super awesome lens for portraits and food!
