Friday Food Day: Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

So these cookies have been a family favorite for, well, as long as I can remember… but, I also have a family who loves Peanut Butter! These cookies are perfect for the winter season to go along with tea, coffee, or hot chocolate; and they are just perfect to snuggle up with to read a good book or watch a movie.


Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

1 3/4 cups of flour

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup of shortening

1/2 cup of peanut butter

2 Tablespoons of Milk

48 Hershey’s Kisses or Brach’s Stars

Shape into balls, roll in sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees. Top each with a kiss or a piece of chocolate as soon as you remove the cookies from the oven.

I made three batches and by the third batch I ran out of stars so I just put 1/2 a bag of mini chocolate chips in the dough and that seemed to be a good substitute. Although I do prefer the stars the best :)
