This classic and traditional cookie I've been eating for years but believe it or not had never made them till this summer as a request for my friend Tynesha's son KaDale's graduation party 2014. I do think they were more for her husband Brian who loves them dearly. lol
Anyway, I couldn't believe how easy these cookies are to make. Not to mention, they are fun & pretty too. Now, I checked some of the recipes on Just a Pinch for these cookies and the ingredients had been altered. I decided to post Hershey's recipe as is...because it was a perfect recipe that didn't need tweaked for me.

How to Make Hershey's Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. While watching a show sit down and unwrap those sweet kisses and place in a bowl for cookie making time. Set oven to 375.
  2. Get out a large bowl and beat together shortening and peanut butter.
  3. Add both your sugars and mix till fluffy.
  4. Add your egg, vanilla and milk and mix again. Now it's time to gradually(about 3/4 cup at a time) add your baking soda, salt and flour to the mixture. Blend well.
  5. Now you are ready to roll. Scoop out dough and shape into 1 inch balls and then roll in the granulated sugar and place on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes....I take mine out as soon as I see a few cracks on the side of the cookies which is 8 to 9 minutes. Immediately remove from oven and place your kisses down in the center firmly but gently and quickly. Once you add the kiss the cookies crack on the sides a little but that's what they are supposed to do. Remove from pan on to a cooling rack. ---- I do not grease cookie pans anymore but ALWAYS USE parchment paper.
  7. Ready to eat.

While my Thanksgiving dinner may be smaller this year, I am still going to roast my usual-sized turkey. It’s just as easy to roast one that’s big or one that’s small.
