Peanut butter and chocolate...a match made in cookie heaven! Soft, chewy peanut butter cookies rolled in sugar and topped with a Hershey kiss. These cookies should be a little crisp on the outside and soft and chewy within. Rumor has it that this classic cookie started as a mistake by a lady in 1957. She ran out of chocolate chips and substituted with a Hershey Kiss on the top instead.

How to Make Peanut Butter Blossoms

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, shortening, peanut butter, milk, vanilla and egg; mix with electric mixer on low speed until stiff dough forms.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake at 375°F. for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with 1 milk chocolate candy, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edge; remove from cookie sheets onto racks to cool.
  5. When the chocolate kiss hardens, you can store them in plastic containers and freeze, unless you eat them all first!
