Ingredients For peanut butter blossom cookies

  • 1 cup
    creamy peanut butte
  • 1/2 cup
    butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup
    granulated sugar
  • 1 Large
  • 1 tsp.
    vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp.
    baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp.

How To Make peanut butter blossom cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In a stand mixer, cream together the peanut butter, butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat together until creamy.
  • 3
    Add the egg and vanilla extract; continue to mix until well combined.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • 5
    Slowly add the flour mixture to the creamed peanut butter mixture; mix until well combined.
  • 6
    Using a teaspoon size cookie dough scoop, scoop up the cookie batter, and make 1-inch balls; then place them on baking sheet that's been lined with parchment paper.
  • 7
    Bake in oven for 8 to 9 minutes. (Don't over-bake the cookies.) Make sure the bottom of the cookie is lightly browned.
  • 8
    Let cookies sit for one minute on cookie sheet. Then lightly press a chocolate star in the center of each cookie.
  • 9
    Transfer cookies to a wire rack to allow the cookies to cool. Once all the cookies have cooled, I then place them back on a cookie sheet (without the parchment paper), and place the cookie sheet in my freezer, so the chocolate star firms up. Later I store the cookies in a Tupperware Container in the freezer. These cookies keep well for some time in the freezer.
